A superb pair of R.W.Forsyth full leather suitcases, made from full leather hide, with brass fittings and a beautiful deep green leather interior lining. These cases are well made and of a high quality, the lids are supported by leather straps, the underside has 6 brass stud feet, these were to raise the cases off the ground for protection, the locks are made from brass and the corners are leather with brass stud work. The makers name is embossed in gold on the inside of the lids (Makers R.W Forsyth Ltd Edinburgh Glasgow). C1900

R.W. Forsyth was born in the Lothians, Forsyth came to Glasgow as a nineteen-year old and gained experience of clothing retailing with several city firms. In 1872 he set up in business as hosier, glover and shirtmaker in Renfield Street. Success led to expansion, and he gradually acquired all the properties around the corner of Renfield Street and Gordon Street. These buildings were demolished and a new department store was built on the site in 1897.

These suitcases are a quality thing, extremely well-made and still very useable. These would make a lovely set for the home or as a shop display.
