I'm having a really rough time trying to learn more about my

Customer Question

I'm having a really rough time trying to learn more about my vintage luggage. I was able to find out that it was made in Brazil when I finally found a tag with some words on it. It was written in Portuguese, so I had to type in the text as it was, and my app translated it to me in English. I don't know when it was made, I can't find anything about the company or street that was stitched in the tag anywhere online. I'm getting very frustrated. I friend of mine told me she believes it's really worth something...but I have no way to find out! HELP ME PLZ!

In order for me to properly assess what you have I will need to see images of the luggage and clear, in-focus close up images of the tag.

Please send the photos at your convenience. There is not an extra charge to provide more pictures here.

There may be an +Add Files button or if there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing above the box where you type in responses, then follow the steps on this link for sharing photos:


You can try emailing your images to *****@******.*** and write “For Nora/Antiques” in the subject line of the email.

Photos sent by email do not arrive to me directly nor instantly, they get forwarded to me by admin.

Hi There,

I received your images thank you, ***** ***** have not found a match to this maker for you.

I will opt-out and your question will open again to all the experts. If someone knows the answer they will post a response to you here. You do not need to re-list your question and this does not cost you extra.

I do hope you find the information that you seek.
