I finally have one! Since I started acquiring my sidesaddle collection I've always drooled over sandwich cases, they're just so interesting. But my cheap side has always prevented me from buying one. My boyfriend found an antique one that matches the color of my saddle in England and had it sent over for Christmas. As soon as I pulled back the wrapping paper I knew it had to be something sidesaddle related because it was in the box it had been shipped from and it was posted from England.
I was really suprised at how heavy it is! It's lined in doeskin and appears to have brass fittings.
The sandwich box folds and I believe it's silver. It's in very good condition. What a tiny sandwich that would have been! And the flask, just enough for a few sips of sherry.
It is definitely something that I will treasure, I'm almost afraid to use it for fear that it might get damaged. It will have to be saved for special occassions.
