Recently acquired along with a vast pocket watch collection, this salesmans’ case is highly collectable / super rare, research revealed none for sale or that have been sold, with virtually no information available at all on the net. Based on its design & style of construction, it could date anywhere from when the company was founded in 1891 up to the 1920s. Internally it has a bright green felt base & a green silk lined lid with the wording "BALL WATCHES" The Railroad Standard. Also note the supports to the sides which would have supported an internal shelf. Externally the leather handle is worn, see photo, with wear and some surface loss to the base. It measures 39cms x 15cms x 7cms high.
