The interior of the case lined in cream linen and with three leather lifting straps.
A wonderful case with beautiful patina, lid with tram line decoration and remains of paper labels, maker unknown. The base with four brass stud feet. The nice thing about this cartridge case is that there are no old owner initials on the case.
