This is a quirky pet bed, suitable for cats or small to medium sized dogs.
It is made from a vintage 1950s suitcase, relined and padded.
The internal measurements are:
62cm x 34.5cm, with a depth of 15 cm.
(24.5 inches x 13.5inches x 6 inches)
The lining fabric is a vintage Wardle fabric from the 1970s.
It is backed with a layer of cotton wadding, with a red and white polka dot bias binding trim around the lid.
The large base cushion is made from a heather coloured herringbone tweed wool.
There is a deep envelope opening to the rear, which is the same fabric as the front.
This suitcase bed comes with two additional scatter cushions.
Each cushion has a removable cover, with a deep envelope opening to the reverse.
One cushion is made in the same vintage Wardle fabric as the base cushion.
It is backed with a fine worsted wool with a black pinstripe design.
The other is made from a deep blue velvet fabric.
All three cushion covers can be gently hand washed or specialist dry cleaned.
As the lid has been gently padded on the inside it is now a decorative feature of the pet bed.
This means the suitcase can no longer be completely closed, as this would damage the decorative edging.
I love the history of vintage suitcases; battered and bruised, each one tells a story.
Being nearly 70 years old, this suitcase is well travelled and has bumps, marks and scratches in keeping with its age.
These add to its vintage charm.
Pure childhood nostalgia.
For pets with a taste for vintage...
