The gorgeous cognac-brown F. W. Woolworth carry-on suitcase is in very good to great condition. The rich cognac color of the pebbled faux-leather exterior has a wonderful mid-century charm. The dimensions of this suitcase place it in the small-medium carry-on category. The inside tag shows that this gorgeous carry-on suitcase was distributed by the F. W. Woolworth Company of New York, NY. 10007 and made in Taiwan. The famous Woolworth Building of downtown Manhattan is located at 233 Broadway New York, NY. 10007. Hence, it is highly likely this beautiful cognac-brown carry-on suitcase was sold from this iconic New York City landmark. Along with its stunning mid-century charm and historically famous brand name, this gorgeous carry-on suitcase has many high-quality features. There are four metal feet on the bottom that not only keep the suitcase above surfaces but help to preserve its rich cognac-brown exterior. Also, there is a fully adjustable shoulder-strap running over the length of the top. While one end of the strap is removable by simply a quick-release hook-style latch, the other end is held on by something similar to a link of chain. In order to remove the link, its center needs to be bent inward just enough to slide it off. The adjustable shoulder-strap also features a sliding shoulder-rest with a slip-resistant plastic bottom. In case its contents are lighter and/or the distance is shorter, the case features two very easy-to-hold handles which are securely mounted to the exterior with both stitching and hardware. There is a huge full-length storage pouch on the front of the exterior that is covered by a fold-over lid and secured by an adjustable buckle-style closure. Both the front and back interior storage sections have two rather large high-quality YKK zipper closures. While there are locks hanging from both zipper sections, they do not have keys. The front interior storage section has both an elastic-like baggy pouch at the back and a larger storage pouch with a snap-button closure on its interior lid. According to references, the design features in this particular carry-on suitcase along with its high-quality craftsmanship are quite rare. To have both front and back interior storage sections in a carry-on style suitcase that includes a fully-adjustable shoulder-strap along with side handles is impressive and incredibly helpful when needed. While this incredibly high-quality carry-on suitcase is certainly ready to travel the world, it is being offered in this listing for decorative purposes only.
Please note that screen resolution and/or original lighting could cause the colors to appear lighter or darker than actual. Also, one of the photos appears to show a red and white rectangular object behind the inner storage section. It has been removed as it was simply an i.d. tag that included someones personal information.
There is a little area on the sliding shoulder-rest that has a small tear near a corner where the strap goes through the rest - less than .25" in length. Other than this, there are no tears, rips, bad odors, or repair places on this incredibly gorgeous cognac-brown carry-on suitcase. There are some vintage wear, age, and rub marks on the suitcase - mainly in the form of rub marks and/or light distress on the exterior along with patina developing on the metal hardware. While some of the rub marks are somewhat darker, those on the exterior edging are mostly white in color. While the interior appears to be very clean, there are some very faint spots of discoloration that are most likely due to aging as opposed to use or wear. Also, while there are some light signs of wear and aging on the interior, the larger storage section with the snap-button closure is still incredibly tight and does not appear to have been used to any extent. In addition, it is important to note that this suitcase has only been wiped down with a damp cloth and has not been conditioned or polished.
The decorative possibilities for this gorgeous cognac-brown F. W. Woolworth carry-on suitcase are many. The display case or open accent shelf would be enhanced by the addition of this rich cognac-brown carry-on suitcase. Also, the entryway or living area would welcome this incredibly stunning F. W. Woolworth suitcase for its wonderful mid-century charm. In addition, the growing bag and luggage collection would increase in value and interest upon the arrival of this quite rare F. W. Woolworth carry-on suitcase.
The collector will appreciate this gorgeous cognac-brown F. W. Woolworth carry-on suitcase for its very good to great condition, rich cognac-brown color, high-quality heavier-duty hardware, impressive design features, wonderful mid-century charm, and beautiful overall appearance.
The gorgeous cognac-brown F. W. Woolworth carry-on suitcase weighs approximately 97.3 oz.
The small to medium size F. W. Woolworth carry-on suitcase measures 22.5" in length not including the shoulder strap mounts x approximately 14.75" tall including the feet x approximately 7.5" deep at the top x approximately 8.25" deep at the bottom.

***Free Shipping in the USA
***Shipping will include insurance
***Shipping for Everywhere Else on the planet:
If you are from outside the United States and you wish to purchase this product put in your correct address and it should populate a quote. If a shipping cost cannot be populated outside of the United States it is possible that the item is too big to be shipped or it is listed for local pickup only. However, please check with me to make sure as sometimes there could be system errors. If you have further questions concerning shipping outside of the USA please contact me.
***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.
