It is unusual to find vanity boxes that match and are therefore are a set. These two boxes are of black papier mache lined with red lacquer. Each box has a matching hand-painted (possibly applied) design of cream daisies and forget-me-nots. The handkerchief box includes an image of a little flying bird and the glove box has a butterfly. The condition is consistent with age. The corners are intact but there is some wear on the lids. The handkerchief box has an area at the top where there appears to be a crack (only visible in some lights) and there is some scratching to the surface. These two boxes would make a lovely addition to a dressing table décor and are most appealing. Handkerchief box daisies 7.5 ins (19cm) x 1.75 ins (3cm). Weight 320 grams. Glove box daisies 12 ins (30.5cm) x 3.75 ins (9.5cm) x 1.5 ins (3.75cm). Weight 308 grams. These items appear in my book, “Antique Boxes, Inside and Out” on pages 401 and 402. 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.
