This cream coloured celluloid box features an elaborate raised floral and geometric design and the word 'Neckties' on the lid. The inside retains its original pale pink pleated fabric lining on the lid and base. The internal hinges are also of fabric, and these cover the external metal hinges. The condition of the exterior is very good for age with some scattered small areas of stain and loss however the interior has significant staining. This lining could be replaced but the box would lose originality. When closing the box, the top and base need to be completely aligned for the clasp to close. This box would be an interesting example to add to a collection of decorative earlier toiletry boxes. 12.5 ins (31.5cm) x 3.75 ins (9.5cm) x 2.5 ins (6.25cm). Weight 314 grams. This item appears in my book, "Antique Boxes, Inside and Out" on page 398.
Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $32.00 USD - with no tracking is cheaper. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us.
