I picked up the bridle hide case below at an estate sale at a very nice home. What the hell is it? It's about 12" wide by 9" tall with a depth of about 5". It's a very nice and thick hide that has aged. It's in great shape except for a few dings. The hardware is first class and it had the original lock and keys ( working too ). Here's the strange thing. When you open it up the insides only go down about 5" to a bottom. And then the final 4" are a separate compartment that is accessed by a snap on the side. I tries to show this in the pictures and if you closely it should make sense. The bottom compartment is wood lined too! It seems like the right size for a wine bottle but the piece doesn't seem built for that. Anyone have any idea what it is? Oh yes, it said "Panzer" inside when I bought it. What the hell is it for?
