Maybe Mrs. Wood used this case on her honeymoon filled with dainty delicate's. Or maybe she used this case when traveling back and forth to her mother's house in Northern Minnesota. It's fun to imagine how she used this case!

This hardsided suitcase is in very good condition. The case is made of a hard fiberboard material, lined with paper. The suitcase has metal corner protectors on all corners, and they are all secure. Some of the metal shows some scratches and wear. The inside of the case is clean, and has the previous owners name and phone number written on it. The original strap is missing from holding the lid open on the inside, by the previous owner fixed that with some string. The original label is mostly gone from the front of the case. The outside of the case is in good condition, showing a bit of scuffs and scrapes from years of use. The hinges are strong and secure. The two latches on the front of the case work as they should. The center latch also works as it should. There is no key for this case. The leather handle has aged, but is still fully functional. There is a hole in the top lid of the case, as shown in the photos. Not sure what this would have been for. Please use the ZOOM tool to get a close up view of this item and its condition.
