This is a VintageTraveling Salesman's Sample DisplayCase that I picked up at a localflea market.It was made by Badger Leather Goods Company and it has a patent number of 2,698,689. I searched this patent number and found that is was registered on January 4, 1955. It has arichreddish/brown color andfour brasslever closures and a card slot on the front to display the owner's name! It has heavy duty harness stitchingthroughout that shows some rubbing wear in spots and especially along the edges.All brass closures, hinges, and toggles are in excellent working order. This bag hasfour heavy duty brassbottom knob protectors. The carry handle isharness stitched and firmly attached but there is some wear and fraying along the stitching edges. The interior isred cloth and has some spotting and staining.Both the top and the bottom have a row of shoe frames and toe hold-downs to hold the shoes. There is also a cloth partition that separates the shoesduring transport and as an extra bonus, it serves as a drop cloth to hide the stand (not included with this sale).My last picture shows the Case sitting on aTVtray stand to show you how the drop will work.The surface materialon this bag looks like leather butI believe it is faux leather.There is some fraying of the edge of the drop cloth and a small2" tear/crack in the case wall but not easy to see.This classic Salesman's Sample Case measures It isoldwith some scratches, scuffs and some lightspotting andit could use a good cleaning and polishing but I will leave that to the Winning buyer. However, despite its age and use, it is in still very nice condition!
Thisold Case would bea great item for storage of your vintage shoe treasuresoras a decorative display piece in a shoe store. I recently saw avintagesuitcase usedas a side table.It wasmounted on old folding luggage rack and was used for decorative purposes. ThisCase would probably look great as a coffee table or side table!
