    Originally designed in 1955 for a VIP client, the Whiskey Case is the epitome of all that is luxury. This case is fully equipped with a whiskey bar, compacted into a travel sized case that is perfect for at home, the office, or during travel. This case is done in classic monogram coated canvas, featuring black leather trim, silver plated brass hardware, one black leather top handle, and a double flip clasp and a pinchlock closure. After opening the top, four crystal coupelle whiskey glasses are revealed, separated into separate compartments done in red taiga leather. There is also a space that holds a crystal coupelle bottle, featuring a silver twist cap. There is one silver flap clasp on either side of this case that opens the second compartment, which is done in matching red taiga leather. This second compartment features one silver ice bucket, and two crystal coupelle coaster trays. There is also a taiga leather box that can be pulled to reveal silver ice tongs, and a silver case that holds eight swizzle sticks. This case includes a black leather luggage tag and two keys with a black leather cord connected to the handle.

    This case is in Excellent Condition. There is light scratching to the hardware, and some scuffing to the base corners. There is faint scratching to the glassware.
