Vintage Canadian Made Hard Leather Suitcase Luggage Made by Christie Baggage
in Amherst, Nova Scotia. This war time era suitcase was made in the
1940's-1950's. It is made of hardened leather and has a leather handle as well.
There is a wear and a damage tear in the leather as seen in the photos. The
inside is hard lined and in very good condition with the straps missing some of
their snap buttons or haven fallen off. There are a couple of moisture stains
as seen in the photos and it has not been attempted to clean. There is no odor.
This is a well cared for suitcase in very good vintage condition consistent
with age related wear and use. It opens and closes with no issues and is
straight and true. This suitcase measures approx. 21" x 15" x 7".

Christie Bros. and Co. was founded in 1863 when brothers Charles and George
Christie purchased the former Nelson Mills mill and carriage shop in Amherst,
Nova Scotia. The company manufactured carriages until 1882 and began
manufacturing coffins and caskets in 1880 when J. Alexander Christie joined the
company. In 1893, Christie Bros. expanded into trunks, traveling bags and
suitcases, adding other leather products in 1910. In 1913, Christie Bros.’
casket division amalgamated with Dominion Manufacturing Limited of Toronto, and
the business was renamed Christie Trunk & Bag Co. Ltd. The factory moved to a
new location in the early 1960s before closing in 1968 with all the equipment
being sold to Continental Luggage.

This suitcase and a piece of Canadian history is still functional as intended
or can add that charm and delight as an end table or night table to your space.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE: I urge all my buyers to read over my shop policies as it is
for your benefit and protection in order for you to be comfortable with your
purchasing decision.

** PLEASE take the time to look over the items and written description
carefully as what I describe may not be to your definition and may be more
exaggerated or severe to your own personal perspective but I try to be as
accurate and transparent as possible. Please also bear in mind that this is a
used vintage item so do not confuse it with new or not in the condition of
being near new as you would imagine it to be. I even had a negative review of a
note clip holder where the buyer said it was too small and not what she
expected even though there was a picture of me holding the item in the palm of
my hands. This disclaimer is necessary now as I have received a few less than
satisfactory reviews by buyers not so much because of the items but more so
from their own expectations and lack of care to properly review the photos and
read over the descriptions. READ THE AD AND LOOK THROUGH ALL THE PICTURES! **
