Traveling Salesman Case

By  | 

What a find! Check out this classic all black traveling salesman case. Can you imagine lugging this thing around full of stuff?

This might be the perfect case for Infinite Possibilities: A Game of Artifact Associations. It’s just asking for backpack straps to be added…

Lea Redmond is always looking for the poem hiding inside things: a salt shaker, a clothes tag, a hand gesture, a cloud. She is infinitely intrigued by the way experiences can slip from the ordinary to the extraordinary and she endeavors to design things that hold this possibility. Leafcutter Designs, her creative studio in Berkeley, CA, makes the world more playful and peaceful one little experience at a time.

    Hey Lea, I’ve got a case made by the same company! My father bought it new in the late 1940’s. My case is smaller than yours, and opens in a staircase fashion. Yours and mine are the ONLY mention I could find of this manufacturer on-line. You can see it on my blog at http://jgfb.blogspot.com/
