Vintage doctor's "black bag" ready to grab on the way out to make a house call!
This nice leather bag is an "Emdee" by Schell. It has a black leather exterior with a grey interior. Everything is complete and workable.
The two handles are secure and unbroken. The clasp works fine (no key) and the bag's frame lines up with no bends or cracks. Both inner pockets have snap closures that function very well. The adjustable leather strap used for securing bottles in the bottom of the case is still here and complete.
There is a patent number on the frame on the inside of the bag "US Pat 1985521". Next to the clasp is the model tag which states "Patent no 2293363 EMDEE by Schell". On the bottom there are 5 metal feet and a "Schell brand" mark and the numbers "5800-38" over "15".
The bag measures approximately 15 1/2" long x 7" wide x 11" tall.
The exterior has the customary scuffs, rubs and wear one would expect considering its use. The interior has two breaks in the lining (see pictures) along the seam where the sides of the case open.
This would make a nice display piece, if you have further questions or picture requests, let me know.
