Antique French WW1 Military Officers Uniform Cover Bag - Garment Case - Military Uniform Luggage - Garment Dust Bag - FF2
A very interesting and highly collectable item - a French Uniform Travel Cover from before the First World War. This antique French garment protector is made from sturdy chestnut coloured canvas with leather straps and metal buckles. It is extremely good, antique condition; there are some parts of the leather binding to the edges that have perished and there is some staining but overall it is in far better condition than might be expected for its age.
The inside cover has two pockets with brown cotton linen ties and the main body go the cover opens up to take a suit or uniform, first protected by two side flaps that tie over it and then by large top and bottom flaps ensuring that the garment is held in place and kept clean. The entire cover can be closed up using the ties, leather straps and buckles and carried using the sturdy stitched leather carrying handle. There is an extra pocket with a leather flap and buckle on the outside of the front of the bag.
It is highly unusual to find such an antique garment cover in this very good, clean condition. The width is 27" or 69cm and the height when open is 47" r 120 cm. The empty weight is just under 2kg.
