There are a lot of double, and even triple, cases out there, but the tenor/soprano combination is rare! Judging by the style of the case, I'd guess that this was made in the 1930's. Both the badge on the exterior, and the label on the interior, indicate it is a product of King/H. It has a nice royal blue, plush interior. It seems to be built more'heavy duty' style than a standard case, in terms of its hardware.Interestingly, it has eyelets for a shoulder strap, which I've never seen on such an old case, but they appear to be original. The case measures 31.5" x 15" x 7, weighs over 16 lbs!
It has a large accessory compartment. One would think that it might have originally contained a clarinet insert, but I don't believe that is so, as there would not have been enough space on top of the accessory compartment for one with the padding on the lid. The soprano would lay in the walled off space behind the tenor. There is a matching, I suppose you'd call it a'pillow', that I assume is meant to lay on top of the soprano.
There is also a red bag (for neck, or stand) included, but I'm not really sure if it is original to the case or not, although it does match the red on the interior label. This case is in overall very good condition, especially considering its age.Naturally it has some wear and tear, being probably 80-90 years old. There are some scuffs and such to the exterior. The remnants of it are included, but isn't really of any use. The interior is in quite good condition. It displays minimal wear, and it is clean and odor free. This probably isn't something that you'd want to actually carry your horns around in, but if you are a collector of King/H. White saxophones it would be a cool way for you to display them!
