$148.00 $185.00

The distressed pebbled-tweed hardshell suitcase is in good condition. There are no discernible marks for identification on this gorgeous dark-blue suitcase. However, the underside of the front closures have "England" on them. According to references, the hardware and trim on this piece of luggage is consistent with British style luggage of the 1940's - 1950's. Furthermore, the locks are supposedly made by Pioneer Cheney. Also, this gorgeous vintage suitcase has a wooden shell that is covered by a dark blue pebbled-tweed material. In addition to the hard wooden shell, the incredible craftsmanship that went into making this suitcase can be further appreciated in the fact that the maker used steel as opposed to brass hardware. The metal hardware is very magnetic. While the hardware has the appearance of brass - at least on the front, magnification reveals that the gold color was actually applied over the metal.

There are no keys included with this gorgeous dark-blue hardshell suitcase.

Please note that the texture on the surface material is simply being described as "pebbled-tweed". This is not the actual name for the particular pattern on the surface of this gorgeous suitcase.

The pictures show that the top side has actually had some weight on it. However, the side has not broken through and appears to have great structural integrity. There are distressed and worn places on this gorgeous suitcase. Even though the interior is intact, the light blue color has some discoloration. The hinges work great. Part of the pin in one of the hinges is sticking out. However, it is still intact and in great working condition. The closures on the front may need oiling in order to make them easier to push in. The off-white plastic-like handle is still intact and in great working condition.

Other than the things mentioned above, there are no problems with the structural integrity of this gorgeous dark-blue hardshell suitcase. There are some vintage wear, age, and rub marks on and in the suitcase - mainly in the form of distress and discoloration. Also, the distressed and rustic metal hardware has a developing patina. In addition, the suitcase will have a bag of charcoal on the inside until it ships. However, if upon arrival it has any sort of odor it may need left open for awhile or simply freshened up a bit. While this suitcase has only a very slight "aged" smell, it is sometimes consistent with older luggage pieces to have a slight odor - especially if they have not been opened for awhile.

The decorative possibilities for this gorgeous and distressed dark-blue hardshell suitcase are many. The entryway or living area would be enhanced by the addition of this gorgeous dark-blue suitcase. Also, the wooden shell of this suitcase makes it perfect for adding legs to make a beautiful accent or end table. In addition, the growing vintage luggage collection will increase in value and interest upon the arrival of this gorgeous dark-blue hardshell British style suitcase.

The collector will appreciate this gorgeous dark-blue hardshell suitcase for its good condition, rare dark-blue color, and overall appearance.

The distressed pebbled-tweed hardshell suitcase weighs 67.1 oz.

The distressed blue hardshell suitcase measures 21" in width x 13" tall to the top of the suitcase x 6 7/8" deep.

The white plastic handle stands approximately 2.5" above the top of the suitcase when it is extended.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.

***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.

***The Bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the Bust by two.

***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. Therefore, after shipping we generally recommend all items be cleaned before use. This is not always because they are considered unclean but simply to make you aware of the possibility of needing to be cleaned after shipping and handling. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.

***Unless noted in the description, we normally do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished appearance.

***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.

***Please note that sometimes we enhance our pictures for sharpness and clarity.

***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.

***The year of production or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.

***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.

***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront.

***Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks. This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know.
