Art Deco fitted leather Dressing Box English
We are offering here an outstanding dressing case and complete from top to bottom. This one has fortunately been protected with a a fitted green canvas case cover (with leather trim and initials “MC”. The leather case is impeccable, hardly a scratch. Looks like the kind of case that was kept in the closet most of its life, hard to see any wear at all. When you open the box, you are surrounded by wonderful fitted items for travel. Probably sold at one of the fine boutique shops from Bond Street in London, England.
I will try and list them:
travel mirror with beveled edge
large oversized ivory tweezer
8 faceted crystal bottles with sterling tops, with hallmark (all with fancy scroll monogram MC)
4 different ivory brushes (all with fancy scroll monogram MC)
hair curling tool
small leather jewelry box
small brass heater in leather box
10 items: fitted manicure, knife, wine, tweezer, lace tightener etc, all in ivory or French Ivory
tortoise comb in fitted leather case
beautiful leather covered moray silk writing tablet with pencil (never used)
The high quality brass locks with keys (stamped British Made)
If you ever wanted a complete traveling fitted dressing case, this is one of the nicest we’ve ever seen. Made in the Art Deco period, circa 1930′s for a time when real money could buy this kind of quality. Certainly rivals Louis Vuitton, or any great French name making fitted travel goods during this period. Makes you kind of feel like boarding the Orient Express, The Queen Mary or the lost Normandy for the trip of lifetime. Can I say spectacular!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
