LOVELY PART SET IN TYPICAL DECO GREEN
BUT I'm not an expert.
I think this case is leather but I would have to damage it to be sure. It could be a very good imitation.
There are a couple of small dots and a scrape to the edge (see last photo).
The gold-filled tooling is in excellent condition inside and outside the case.
The silvering on the mirror is crazed - see photo.
Both pairs of scissors and one double-ended tool missing.
Some age spots on the cream velvet lining.
The handle of one tool looks as if it has been in contact with a chemical - hairspray or perfume maybe - but it is still sound to use and I didn't notice it at first.
The metal file has seen use!
The two screw-top pots for nail buffing powder are not a perfect match and the buffer, one pot and the stick are slightly lighter green than the rest - maybe left in the sun, maybe a marriage.
Nail buffer is lovely.
Hinge is very good quality ?brass?
I bought this for the box and the buffer but on closer inspection decided it would be criminal to split it up.
Happy to answer questions.
