Antique 1870/80s vintage vanity box Decoupage, Celluloid coated, with hand tinted illustrated lid.

We are very pleased to be able to offer for your consideration this antique vanity box.

This wonderful antique vanity box is covered in a rose patterned, burgundy paper with a beautiful hand tinted fashion illustration of a women wearing a elaborate hat of the period. The box measures approximately 7 1/4 inches wide, 7 1/2 inches deep, and 3 1/2 inches tall. It has double hinges on the back, and a very decorative clasp closure on the front. When you open the box you find a pleated pink satin liner on the inner lid, the lid sides are lined but not pleated. The inside bottom of the box is also lined in pink satin, and there is a very clever hinged, pink velvet lined plank with loops to accommodate various dressing tools, such as button loops, as well as manicure tools.

Condition- The overall condition of this box is very good. The interior fabric shows some fading and spots, and there is one 1/2 inch diameter stain on the left (See Pictures) The exterior is in very good condition as well, but there are some small signs of wear mostly occurring at the top edge of the bottom half of then box, and a small knick on the edge by the clasp closure. But even with these small flaws this remains a very pretty vanity box.

If you are a collector of vanity and beauty accessories, especially beauty accessories from the late 1800s this box and it's contents with make wonderful additions to your collection.
