I bought this Hartmann Wardrobe luggage at a yard sale. Did a little of bit of researching online that's how I found out the type of luggage it is and possibly when it was made. Looks like a 1936 Hartmann luggage.
(First Image on this link below looks exactly like the piece I have)
(This link below shows an ad of this piece - the 10th image down - )
Has alot of Vintage Shipping labels on it which are not in the greatest condition. But very interesting.
From what I can read one of the shipping labels indicates Norddeutscher Lloyd Zimmer-Stateroom. The writing shows
Dampfer/Name is "JM Vendereer "
Zimer No./room number "361"
Original keys are with the luggage and everything is working. All compartments open and closes okay and seem to be in tact but there is definte wear and tear like rust and a musty odor...lol
On the leather strap there is an imprint 2 613 21
Wanted to know what this is valued at and if it is better to leave as is or restore it. Would also like to know if there is a way to determine the exact year this was made.
