“What is it?” #55 – the answer

This week, our vintage item is a leather briefcase. My mother gifted my father with this, inked in gold with his initials, and he  proudly carried it when he was in sales. My brother and I couldn’t part with it after our father passed, but since I love all things old and shabby my brother thought I should have it. Does anyone have a creative repurpose idea for it? I would enjoy seeing it displayed in my home. The inside is not leather, and has not weathered the years as nicely as the outside, so perhaps it would benefit from a lining.
