This is a pretty celluloid box with floral themes and a picture of a young girl with flowers on the front. The top lid lifts to allow the front to drop down to reveal a deep pink silk lined interior. This has spaces for cream celluloid toiletry items which include a brush, mirror, small box, nail buffer and combined nail file, pick and cuticle pusher. These tools all have their own specific spaces. The exterior of the box shows signs of wear and tear and the interior has some staining. The hinges and claps are secure. Inside, the clip that holds the mirror in place needs attention and the braid around the buffer is broken in one spot. Despite these problems, this box presents as a pretty addition to a collection of vintage or retro items and would fit into the category of “shabby chic”. Length 4 ins (10cm), width 9 ins (22.75cm), depth 6 ins (15.25cm). Weight 1010 grams. This item can be seen in the book, "Antique Boxes - Inside and Out", on page 393. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $48.00 USD - with no tracking is cheaper. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us.
