A very nice vintage 1940s travel case, probably for travelling with a small musical instrument, such as a flute, clarinet, recorder, etc.
It seems to be made from some sort of compressed fibre, which I am at a loss to identify, but I have seen cases made from the same or similar material dating from the 1940s and 1950s. I remember my own parents owning several! It is a rigid material and has a very nice outer covering which is stitched. The best description is the visual one, so please refer carefully to the photos by using the zoom feature. Please note that the color is more cream and brown than the grey tone showed n the photos.
The case has two metal hinged closures and a red metal and silver carrying handle. On the interior, it is lined by a cream and red patterned paper. The previous owner has inscribed their name on the lid but I am unable to decipher it exactly but looks like #39;Sylvaine Filleau#39;.
The case measures 16 3/8 inches (41.5 cm) in length x 5 2/8 inches (13.5 cm) in width x 3 2/8 inches (8 cm) in depth. Weight is 380 grams.
It#39;s in a great vintage condition; a lovely little 1940s case which could have many uses as well as using it for transporting musical instruments (for storage of makeup, toiletries, bathroom items, stockings, scarves, etc.)
I am happy to combine shipping if there is another item in my shop you would like to purchase. Please message me for a combined shippingn quote.
NEW TO ETSY? This will help you through the checkout process:
I always endeavor to dispatch most orders within 1-3 business days. I use La Poste economy shipping for all items weighing less than 2 kg after packaging is added unless otherwise stated in the listing; this service includes tracking. However, as this method does not include insurance, I cannot be held responsible for lost or undeliverable parcels (this includes parcels not collected from a local pick up / collection point when advised to do so by your local postal service). Please ensure your correct address and contact details are listed with Etsy to avoid such issues. All items over 2 kg are sent via Colissimo and are tracked and insured. Colissimo insurance is 23 euros/kg of weight so for more expensive items, there is an option to upgrade the insurance, which is usually between 1 and 4 euros. Please message me for more information BEFORE making your purchase.
All items will be very carefully protected and packaged with bubble wrap or other appropriate packing material. I always endeavor to use recycled material, so please do not be surprised if your order comes in a wine box! I don#39;t charge for packaging materials and try as much as possible to recycle packaging when I can. This helps the environment and keeps costs down.
Parcels for France under normal circumstances take between 2-3 days, Europe 3-5 days, and USA, Canada and Australia 8-10 days. PLEASE NOTE: I DO NOT REFUND FOR UNCLAIMED OR UNDELIVERABLE PACKAGES DUE TO INCORRECT / INCOMPLETE ADDRESS.
Combined Shipping Cost: If you would like to purchase more than one item, please contact me to request a combined shipping quote. How that works is you pay up front for both items to be shipped separately and then I refund you the difference via Etsy payments once I have posted your order and know the combined cost.
Vintage Items: Please note that vintage items, by nature, are likely to have various marks and show indications of their age. I take care to photograph each item in such a way as to highlight these age-related and charming characteristics as clearly as possible. Due to digital photography, there may be slight color variations and some imperfections may vary from the actual photographs. If you have any questions, please contact me before purchasing. I would be very happy to send you more pictures.
Knowing you are satisfied with your purchase is of the utmost importance to me, so please let me know if you are not. I try to be as accurate as possible with my photographs, descriptions and measurements – so please take time to review these before you purchase; especially important are the measurements. Further information on exchanges and returns can be found in my policies section. If you are happy with your purchase, please let me know by sending feedback.
