I got this at a garage sale mainly because I love the thirties and needed a place for all my scarves. But I'm not sure what it is, or if what the value could be. Any help would be great thanks.

    Awesome display case - I believe it to be both a store display and a traveling salesman case - they would pile samples of their materials in the case and display in a general store - or the salesperson would take it on the road - the wool fabrics displayed were typically for tailoring of clothes, suits, etc
