Vintage Samsonite Luggage Fashionaire Black and White Flower Power Pattern Large Size Suitcase. This pattern is from the 1960's, the original name of the pattern is Wild Gardenia and it is black and white flowers with Veuve Clicquot orange interior fabric. This line was reproduced in 2007 with a limited edition of 600 suitcases, retail price of $580. This suitcase is the original 1960's bag and not one of the reproduction pieces.
The black and white flower pattern on the outside of the bag is a heavy vinyl fabric, the orange lining of the bag is Veuve Clicquot and is made of fabric. This suitcase is in good condition, it does have signs of use but overall is clean bag. It is 29" long by 20" tall and 8" wide, has an elastic edged pocket on the clothing divider, elastic is not stretched out, divider has a turn style tab at the top to hold it in place.
The interior is in very good condition, clean, no stains except for one that is in the upper right corner of the case in the section behind the clothing divider. The outer surface is in good condition, it does have some very light yellowing to the vinyl around the edges in spots that are age related, one spot where the surface has been hit against something but did not cut the surface, sort of indented it. There is also some wear to the surface on the two very bottom corners on side, the surface has been damaged, like a wear spot but this is on the bottom of the case and not noticeable unless you are looking for it.
Overall this bag is in very good condition, a hard to find piece.
