Suitcase

hard-shell suitcase with a brown leather cover

The hard-shell suitcase (44.0 x 65.0 x 18.0 cm) in a typical 1920s and 1930s design, with a brown leather cover, not only has typical details such as a leather handle, six metal feet, metal clip-fasteners and leather applications on the corners, but also features 18 colourful stickers on the front side. This was a popular way for GDR citizens to document their travel destinations. The stickers include references to the cities of Sopot, Gdnask, Kraków, Warsaw, Prague, Czechoslovakia and the capital of Germany. The suitcase is lined with material inside, including pockets to store smaller objects. Leather straps can be used to tie down the packed items for transportation, preventing them from sliding and creasing inside the suitcase.
