Top quality English pigskin tie case, around a century old, and with some minor battle-scars, but still in good usable condition. The leather has a few scuffs and stains, as you can see. The bottom corner is rubbed, and a few stitches have worn away, but this does not affect the use of the case at all. The sturdy Lightning zip and the Newey fasteners are still in full working order. The cloth lining is in good condition for its age, with a few scrapes and marks, but no real damage except for at the top of the spine, where the folded hanger has worn through the lining, as shown. The ties, pin and stud are for display only, and are NOT included in the sale.
