Vintage Wood Carrying Case / Suitcase / Briefcase - Woven Handle - Rattan Bamboo Design


Brand Unknown

For consideration is this larger vintage carrying case made of some type of wood.  It has  woven handles and a beautiful design on top, front and back which is comprised of woven rattan / bamboo within a diamond shape with lighter highlights than the rest of the piece.  The hardware is a bronzey-gold tone brass or metal and is antique'd with a warm patina.    The case opens and is stained inside the same as the wood on the outside. It has a unique shape as well, one that I haven't seen often if ever at all. There are small wood feet on the bottom to help it sit evenly as the wood case itself is curved. I used this as decor in my husbands home office for years along with some other leather and wooden cases which I'll be listing as well.  I've had them for at least 20-25 years and some I bought at antique / resale shops and some were purchased new but I honestly don't recall which is which so I can only safely say they are at least 20-25 years old.


Measures: 12 3/4" tall (not with handles, case only) x 12 1/4" wide x 7" deep at bottom.

Condition:  There is a piece of wood trim missing as shown in the last photo and a few minor scratches here and there.  

*The first photo shows the case on a HUGE wood corbel with some books about 6" wide to give you a little perspective on size.  The wood corbels (pair) will be listed at some point or inquire if interested.
