I'm a percussionist, not a trombonist, but it looks to me like it would be an alto trombone case?

There is this wikipedia site with more info on the various types of Trombones (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Types_of_trombones). Surprisingly there are types I had not heard of until reading that page.

Hi, even if my name says I play tuba, I'm first a trombone player and I have a case just like this one at home. A 9 inches bell can be either for a Bach Stradivarius 36B or a 42B, the only difference is the tubing diameter. The 36B is a medium bore professionnal trombone and the 42B a large bore.

Hope this answer does not come too late.
