A leather hide, medium sized Suitcase stamped R.W. Forsyth Ltd, Dressing Bag Makers, Glasgow & Edinburgh.

This case is well made, as you would expect of the maker and has a blue quilted lining. The lid is supported by dark blue leather straps and the handle shaped for a good grip. The underside has 5 large brass stud feet to raise it off wet ground and the pair of locks and handle fittings are also brass. The top of the case is tooled with the owner’s initials H.P.H. in black but there is no further information as to whom this might be.

This is a well-made case and still very useable. The maker’s stamp dates it to after 1902 when the business became limited. Early 20th Century.
