HAND STITCHED LID-OVER-BODY ATTACHÉ CASES

 

FINEST QUALITY, EXTRAORDINARY ATTACHÉ CASES

 

Traditional British Lid-Over Body Attaché Cases

hand made in Cambridge, England by Swaine Adeney Brigg Ltd.


 

FINEST QUALITY TRADITIONAL BRITISH HAND-STITCHED LID-OVER-BODY ATTACHÉ CASES

 

OUR MOST TRADITIONAL STYLE OF ATTACHÉ CASE, the lid-over-body design was originally designed early in the 19th century. The shape is constructed using a steel frame in the lid and the body. The Bridle Hide is bonded to vulcanized fibreboard and as shown above, completely hand-stitched with natural linen thread using a 'twin needle' saddlery technique.

Shown above in Traditional Dark London Tan Bridle Hide with Green textured Skiver leather and Solid Brass fittings.

Each case within this range is available to be produced with a choice of Traditional Dark London Tan, Chestnut, Havana, and Black Bridle Hide. Dark London Tan is a traditional English Tan, with a slight cast of peach. Chestnut resembles a fresh chestnut, a rich brown with a cast of burgundy. Havana is a very dark brown and resembles a coffee bean and Black is simply Black.

Linings include traditional Textured Green Skiver leather, as shown above, as well as Natural (Tan) Suede, and Bridle Hide. Bridle Hide lining is a 'self-lining' as shown in Black in the photograph below.  Natural Suede is particularly handsome with the darker colours.  Where you see our traditional Green Skiver Lining above, you would see a lovely medium Tan Suede.  The trim will match the bridle hide exterior.

 

Currently this range of  hand-stitched cases are produced with two pen loops as shown in this photograph.  If you are interested in alterations to to file, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you.  We have had customers request larger pen loops, no pen loops, deeper files, additional files ...please let us know what will suit you best.

Each case is accompanied with a removable identification tag available with complementary personalization.

We feature four standard hand-stitched sizes and custom sizes:


SMALL measuring approximately 3.5 by 15 by 11 inches (ideally suited for personal use).


MEDIUM measuring approximately 3.5 by 18 by 13 inches.


LARGE measuring approximately 4.5 by 18 by 13 inches.

 

EXTRA LARGE  measuring approximately 7 by 18 by 13 inches.

 

As these goods are hand made the height will vary slightly and may increase possibly increase by 1/8 of an inch.   Recently we have received requests for selections that measure between our Large and Extra Large size.  The depth of the case will alter between 5 and 6.5 inches.  We are delighted to let you know these special sizes are currently available to be produced with an additional fee of $500.00. 


The pricing includes traditional textured green Skiver lining or Natural Suede lining and Solid Brass Key Locks.  Combination Locks, although discouraged, are available with an additional fee. 

 

Polished Nickel Fittings and Key Locks is a fantastic look.  The Nickel is quite bright, similar to English Sterling Silver and very popular, especially with Black Bridle Hide.  Our Polished Nickel, unfortunately, is no longer offered with combination locks.
