Jaunty 1950s luggage Label Duffel

Product ID: H113

This fabulous kitsch vintage duffel bag heralds the exciting new era of travel of the 1950s. In the new materials and popular style of the period it is one of the first surviving ones we have come across.

Whilst a trip to the coast or a holiday camp were the choices for most workers newly entitled to two weeks holiday in the mid fifities, for a lucky few the adventure of foreign travel beckoned. This fabulous little bag is decorated with the stylized luggage labels of the time, to exciting new destinations such as Rome, Paris, Venice and Capri. Who could resist the lure of the Grand hotel Florence, the Orient with Lufthansa or the thrill of New York!

Size & Condition:

Measuring approximately 14” in length and 7” in diameter at the base, this vinyl bag is in good, clean vintage condition for its age. There is light wear marking to the base and some of the stitching is worn in places around the opening. In general however the bag remains sturdy and utterly useable. The two cord handles have vinyl comfort grips.

Swing this fun duffel over your shoulder or a chair back for a witty vintage touch.

The Grand Tour meets Fifties frolics!
