The luggage is not quite as  shown in the 1960 catalogue.   This Set did continue into the Jenny’s Home range of furniture.  The colour was changed though to brown with cream handles, it has always been sold as a group of three items.

This picture shows the inside of the suitcase.  There is a piece of silver painted plastic which has a fitting for the handle and the little claps lock.  For the size of this luggage the detail is very good, and not something you expect in a Triang piece.
