    Mark Cross is world-famous for travel wares, especially exotic trunks and luggage. The perfect travel companions that exude luxury, these suitcases evoke luxurious vintage travel. This set is done in shiny black crocodile, and all are accented with expertly paired gold tone hardware. All three pieces feature two combination pinch lock closures that open to reveal beige leather interiors. The interiors of the two suitcases feature one large slip pocket, two smaller slip pockets, and two black crocodile straps to secure contents. The train case interior features a removable standing table mirror, two slip pockets, and four loops to secure toiletries. The train case also features a base drawer that, when pulled out, features a red velvet interior with two compartments.

    This set is in Good to Very Good Condition. There is light scratching throughout the exterior crocodile. The hardware shows scratching, chipping, and patina appropriate with age. There is some minor cracking and peeling to the exterior crocodile appropriate with age and wear, but is not a major concern. The interior leather shows light signs of general wear, but is in exceptional condition based on age. The interior leather exhibits some creasing in places. There is light scuffing to some of the corners of the exterior. This set includes one beige leather dust cover for each piece.
