Scrolling through Pinterest, I have located some new special finds that I am lovin featuring…
Antique Travel….cameras, luggage and globes.
Traveling was an adventure in its day not only with your destination, but the items you carried with you. Perhaps some of them were used to actually plan your trip. I stepped back in time to bring you some of the great antique travel tools that got travelers to and from their wondrous trips.
Antique cameras come in all shapes, styles, and sizes. Some that are very ornate and others that are a little more plain, but have a different quality of beautiful.
This camera is a Kodak 3A Autographic Camera Model C circa 1913-1919. The details of this beautiful camera from Kodak will keep your eye moving from detail to detail.
A French camera produced by E. Guérin & Cie in 1923. The face of this camera has such a great design and simple detail that holds your attention.
1928 Bell and Howell Filmo 75. The Bell and Howell film mechanical supply company is still in existence. This camera weighted 3 pounds and could fit into a coat pocket.
Suitcase made in calf- and crocodile skin, Uruguay 1920-1930. The leather on these cases is beautiful and the patina gives them character.
Can you imagine back in the day when some people didn’t just have regular luggage to travel. They traveled with a mini closet to store all their necessities.
The beauty that Samsonite gave us with all the color, style, and texture choices of luggage. This is a beautiful set and all for a specific use and you did not just toss everything in one bag and go…oh my no.
A beautiful 12″ table top globe by Rand, McNally & Company 1924 Chicago.
Then there is the over-the-top globes that are just jaw dropping. This terrestrial table globe from 1588 was made by Johann Reinhold in Augsburg, Germany.
This lavish terrestrial and celestial globe was commissioned in 1786 by Louis XVI to be used during the geography instructions with his son the Dauphin. Can you imagine learning your geography on a globe like this? Amazing detail and the brilliance of the inter workings of the globe.
Are there any antique travel items you find beautiful or just down right amazing?
I hope you have enjoyed this little tour of some great antique travel items through the cameras, luggage, and globes. All of these and more are on my Pinterest page.
