Rare Antique American Shoe Case

Very rare American shoe suitcase made by the Fulton Leather Goods Company, New York, who were located at 138 West 25th Street.
Ive never seen one like this and while probably not a bespoke piece, it has the owners initials on the front.
Lined in a beautiful green taffeta, the shoe trees are made from wood and painted in a matching green.
Would look wonderful as a display piece for beautiful shoes, or even to just keep regularly worn shoes by the front/back door.
The case is rigid, with leather trims to the edging and handle and this is well worn.
Within the case, there is a central divider that can be removed (please see photos) if storage is needed for other items.
The inside of the case is pretty immaculate, no rips to the fabric or chips to the wood paint.
Its really quite special.
(Please note: if you are around a size 10, the case won't close shut! If you are smaller - Im a size 5, it does easily.
Would make a wonderful gift for someone who enjoys looking at their shoes (erm, like I do) or even within a retail environment.
