Brief Description
Tall case used for storing a movie projector and accessories. The outside is covered in cloth, darker on the sides, which is textured and coloured to resemble leather. The bottom corners are protected by metal and the hinged lid is held shut with two flip-up closures and has a metal handle, painted brown, on top. Inside are two compartments, one larger on the right (to store .1) with felt pads on the bottom and the other quite thin (with .2, .4-.6). A metal plaque attached to the front of the case reads "AMPRO / PRECISION PROJECTOR / SIMPLEX / AMPRO / LONDON".
