Antique French Grand Tour Travel Valet, Vanity Items in Leather Valise, Case, or Etui
Oh, perhaps because I love to travel so much - I don't know why these old travel vanity sets always catch my eye as they do. But this one is a c. 1850-70s leather one from Paris maker, complete even now with nearly everything that originally came with it. A smallish set, perhaps for a child or a young person, it's got the essentials, including a combo tweezer and ear wax spoon. The basic essentials of good grooming and in a stylish and very well preserved valise. Can't you see this one in some movie or other, and imagine the joys of travel, even back when a train case was as essential as was a hat and a ticket. Even has a wallet case there for letters, paper or cash. A few of the grooming item missing from their leather straps, as you can see, but the silver-plate topped jars, cologne bottle and the rest are all in very fine condition. A fun gift to give along with the tickets for your own Grand Tour, perhaps?
Very good condition just as you see it. Most if not all of the original traveler's vanity items remain inside. The caps to jars and cologne are French silver plate rather than sterling. Its leather case is in remarkably good condition for its age, and has no splits at the handle which is so often the case. Slight wear at the folds, visible in our images. Clasp holds tight and releases with a button slide motion, no key necessary. You could certainly use this one. Demure in size - measurements noted directly on our photos for your review.
