Antique Leather Suitcase by H. Greaves. V195

Antique Leather Suitcase by H. Greaves. V195 Suitcase  Luggage Leather %%alt5%% %%alt6%%
Early 20th century leather suitcase that combines quality, condition and history. Made by H. Greaves of New Street, Birmingham, the case opens to reveal a honey coloured pigskin lining stamped in gold leaf with the makers cartouche. It is well travelled, but the quality of construction and fittings has left it in exceptional condition.
The case has the initials E.H.C. on the lid, and a tag that came with the case reads "E.H.C. Emmeline Hannah Cadbury. Direct from family". Emmeline (1883-1966), born in Madagascar, married William Cadbury, of the Cadbury/Bourneville chocolate making family, in 1902. This sturdy piece of luggage probably accompanied her on the voyages that a wealthy woman of that time could undertake. A lovely piece of history, now mounted on a simple black stand, useful as a coffee table, or somewhere to hide your chocolates! Circa 1910
