This is a Vintage I Magnin Leather Train / Travel / Cosmetic / Vanity Case. Metal label is on the front of the case as seen in a closeup photo. The case and the handle are covered in a beautiful, rich light / medium brown leather. The case has two brass latches with locks but, as found, there is no key and the case is offered as found in that regard.The case is about 13" wide x 9" deep x 7 1/2 high (not including the handle). The inside is lined with a light pink-rose satin-like fabric. The fabric in the bottom is clad in a protective layer of clear plastic. There is a narrow shelf along the front and back edges that held a tray, but as found, there is no tray. The case is offered as found in that respect as well.
Inside the lid is mirror, resting in a pair of heavy leather corner supports, and secured at the top with a brass toggle, the closes against a leather strap attached to the back of the mirror to facilitate removing the mirror. There are four protective brass feet on the bottom of the case. We do not know specifically when the case was made. The case is in good condition with the following issues to be noted.
There are few scuffs and worn spots on the leather. The main ones are on the top front center edge, on the right side. There is wear at all four corners on the lid. At three corners this is pretty minor, but at the back right corner, there is some wear through the leather to the extent that you can see some of the wood beneath.
There is minor variation in the patina of both the leather and the brass hardware. The finish on the mirror is in fair to poor condition. There is wear through the silvering around the sides and top as seen.Please note that the major color variation seen along the bottom edge simply a reflection and not damage to the mirror's finish. The entire mirror has cloudiness. The protective backing that was glued over the silvering has come completely loose and it is not attached. As already noted above, the case is offered as found with respect to having no key and no tray. The case is offered as found / as seen / as described.
