Late 1800’s – Early 1900’s Celluloid Handkerchief Box


translation missing: en.products.item.price.price_per_unit_html

Measures:  3” tall, 7.75” wide, 6.25” deep

The celluloid is beautifully embossed with floral decorations, the word “Handkerchiefs” and little round embellishments.  The front features dancing ladies and a baby.  The inside is lined with gathered cream colored silk.  It does have some character, the celluloid is coming away in places, please see the photos.  The front latch is bent up a bit so while it does line up it doesn’t quite latch – this could be corrected by the purchaser if desired.  The hinges are in place and work well.  The silk on the inside cover is showing its age, the silk in the bottom is fine.  A very nice piece to add to a vintage vanity!
