That's a great Gore case. Looks like the one I almost went after on Ebay.

I don't have one yet.

I picked it up here. Very simple refurbish job - light brown die to cover up blemishes and a nice coat of polish.

Very nicely done.

Big pay off for relatively little effort.

Thank you! I've only seen those style end caps on cases marked Brunswick. I'm a fan of tube cases, so this helps with my understanding on the evolution of It's George cases.

Bump for a cool thread and....

Anybody know what this is? "Fellini style" with silver button closure on body of case. I do not have the case in hand to give more details.

I know I have seen this before but can't remember and can't find in my files.

Large pics:

It's not a Meucci "Tough Love" case. They were made with injection molded foam like a Porper case but in sort of a Fellini style.

Were there Meucci cases like this one? I have pics of these cases in my files but neglected to label them.

Sure looks like a Gore, not a Fellini. But, I don't remember that small button release on either, to be honest.

All the best,

Hi Chopdoc,
I have a case with the identical round push-in latch.
I've owned for 25+ years.
Smooth black, in unused like new condition.
I picked it up along the way because of the latch.
I have no answer as to the maker, but can attest now that
there are at least two of them!

Early Schon my guess.

Looks to be the same size as a Schon and many case makers used different latches at some point.

This has really been a fun read+

My cases started with Brunswick( mainly the cardboard box but also the Hustler style ) ,Palmer,Fellini,Ann Gore, Kelli,,Mc Dermott,Centennial,Its George,Del Webb,Oneal
Thomas,Greg Price,Rusty Thomas,King,JB(allsorts)

Of the Brunswick ,or gunsmith Hustler cases which have the most romance,I have to give credit to
JB for my favorite,Rusty Melton gets the nod for the tooling cases,and Oneal for the suitcase style

All of these cases for me personally convicts me of a misspent youth


Of all the cases i had,i never had a Justise or Flowers,no reflection on these guys
If there were a hall of fame case maker,both of these guys would be there

Thanks for the thread

I have pictures of a smooth black one in my files.

I have seen these before and thought I knew what they were but just can't think of what they were and I have no notes on them, just pictures.

Indeed latches have varied on some maker's cases. But this one is unusual and I have seen only three or four.

And some makers never varied latches AFAIK. Such as Fellini...I never saw any of them that used a latch other than the traditional diary lock.


Schon? Maybe...I still don't know...

I dig this thread, and your contributions here are excellent. I respect your opinions and experiences. And when you put things in terms of "romance" I can't help but think we share an appreciation of such things that transcends technical matters.

I love the history, the "romance", the nostalgia.

A cue or case need not be famous or fancy to capture such qualities.
