Travel in style! Fabulous French Belle Epoch era supple and elegant navy blue leather 'trousse d' voyage' or travel valise, complete with the original navy canvas cover! The interior finely appointed with leather fittings holding gilded sterling silver or 'vermeil' topped jars & brushes, etc., including a vanity mirror and folded case with manicure implements! Some wear to the rose colored gilding on the silver cologne or perfume bottle tops but the case and comprehensiveness of this one really makes it a treasure! We'd be happy to wheel polish the silver to bring it all back to a matching polished silver colored finish, just ask. Palais Royal style fittings, like the earlier wooden travel chests owned by Josephine herself. Yes, this one is a bit newer, likely turn of the century to early 1900s. An exquisite set, don't miss it!
Very good-excellent condition! Nothing missing that I can see and only the possibility of a tiny nip or two to the crystal or glass jars/perfume bottles. Complete with the original beveled vanity mirror in the lid. No key but the side clasps hold securely and the canvas cover is complete. See pictures for measurements.
