Upcycled Suitcase, Pink, 1860s Tintypes
This was a thrifted blue suitcase, more like the size of a large briefcase, that I upcycled with gesso, paint, paper collage, sharpies, inks, modpodge, and krylon.
The images of three tintypes are taken from the Liljenquist Collection at the Library of Congress, uploaded to Flickr Commons. They feature two girls, a pale woman in a striped dress, and a dark-skinned woman in a calico dress. All were originally Civil-War era tintypes.
This case is big enough to carry a full-sized laptop, with plenty of room to spare. The interior is extremely clean and fully padded, with a small diamond-shaped mirror in the lid. A small section of the lining needs to be retacked to the side with a bit of glue--I'll do that if you want, or you can.
THE LAPTOP SHOWN IN THE 3RD PHOTOGRAPH IS FOR SCALE AND NOT INCLUDED IN THIS LISTING.
