I have just become the proud owner of a rather large Gladstone bag. As you all know I have a penchant for conker brown leather luggage and after a visit to the Brackley Antiques Centre in Northamptonshire I came away with this rather fab and extremely large Gladstone.
Goodness only knows how someone carried the thing once it was packed as it is so heavy when it is empty.
To give you an idea of the size I have placed my other large Gladstone next to it.
It is rather gorgeous and we are currently in the process of cleaning and feeding the leather to bring back the lustre it once had without of course spoiling its patina of age. I am keeping it but am going to part with the other large Gladstone that was in the picture to justify it to myself. Am off to an antiques centre in Leek Staffordshire this morning...will let you know if I come up with any other goodies. Hope you are all having a relaxing weekend.
