    Leather attache case with lock and original key.

    This is a lovely, classically minimalist attache case! Made by Duolynx, this has two interior compartments as well as an interior zippered security compartment. The back has a further zippered compartment. This comes complete with its original key, and is in excellent condition except that the left hand side of the handle is currently held on my a paperclip--very securely, I might add, as I didn't notice this flaw until I was photographing! This would be a very easy and cheap fix for your local cobbler. But because of this this lovely case is just in Very Good condition, and so is just $35, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.

    15" long, 11" high, 3" wide.

    Classic vintage hard-side briefcase.
    Likely dating from the 1960s this comes form the estate of a VERY prominent Princeton attorney from a white-shoe law firm. The locks work cleanly and well (although the tabs don't snap up all the time, as they used to in the Kennedy administration) as does the interior hardware. This case has the typical patina from use, and is monogrammed under the handle; this could be ignored or gold-leafed over by your cobbler. This case is in Very Good condition, and ready to give you decades of service!

    Measurements: 18 1/2" long, 12 1/2" wide, and 5" deep. Asking just $39, boxed and shipped in the USA.

    Vintage "Air King" briefcase.

    Dating from when jet travel was exotic and glamorous this solid case is covered with top-grain cowhide. It has some cosmetic flaws--the most noticeable being the strip of leather missing from one side--but it is so solidly constructed that it will be happy to serve as a briefcase for a couple of decades to come. The twin locks on the front function well, although they no longer spring up. The interior features an accordion file system on the top. This has the usual patina of a vintage case, and so is in Good/Very Good condition.

    Measures: Length: 17 3/4", Width: 11 3/4", Height 5". Asking just $39 or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.

    Schlesinger Classic Leather Briefcase

    [​IMG]

    Founded in 1919 Schlesinger is still a family-owned business that continues to manufacture its products in the United States.

    This classic leather briefcase is a lovely example of their wares. Made in the USA from full-grain cowhide this is a classic flapover expandable briefcase. It features three large interior compartments, as well as a full-length compartment on the back. The lock is brass, as is the rest of the hardwere, and the corners are reinforced on the bottom with a double layer of leather.

    The case comes complete with its original hangtag and original key, both of which are unused and contained on the original small bag that they came in.

    This bag was used very sparingly, but it does have some minor marks on the back, some minor wear to the handle, and the original owner's initials embossed on the front. (It would simple to have your local cobbler just block these out.) Because of these it is in Very Good/Excellent condition, and is a bargain at just $49, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA!

    Measurements:

    Height: 13"
    Length: 17 1/4"
    Width: 8 1/2" (fully expanded)

    Vintage Leather Document Cases!

    When you only have a few documents to carry a full briefcase of satchel can be rather cumbersome--and that's the time that you need a document case!

    I have two lovely vintage cases to pass on today. Both are leather, and made in Brazil for a company called LAND. Each case has a leather carrying handle on one side--or else you could just tuck them under your arm, rather than have them dangling from your hand like the carcass of some newly-killed prey!

    They each have three full-length zippered compartments; the top one is the full height of the case, the second approximately half this, and the third nicely shallow for pens and other items. The zippers are sturdy YKK zippers, and all move beautifully fluidly.

    They are both in Very Good condition; Case 1 has some slight curl to the leather by the top zipper, Case 2 has a dark scuff on the back.

    Asking just $18 each, or offer, shipped in the USA--or $25 for the pair!

    Measurements:

    Length: 17 1/4
    Height: 11 1/4
    Width: 2 1/2
