Toadstool Farm Vintage

1 Available

Wonderful personal grooming kit circa 1930s or 1940s. Black leather exterior lined in apple green silk. I believe it has all of the tools still with it. There are so many and some of them I am not familiar with their use but there is s small file, a nail buffer, button hooks, a brush that I believe is for shoes and/or clothing and lots more. There is a small oval box that contains, at this point, a red waxy thing that could be a lipstick or possibly blush. The handles are all made of, I believe, celluloid, an early form of plastic. It measures about 7.5" by 4" when rolled up, and has a two metal snaps.

Excellent to great vintage condition. Especially considering it's age. The black leather is doing just fine. The green silk has some general color fade and some deterioration near the snaps of the flap and at the creases of the side flaps, but it doesn't appear to be threatening its stability as long as its treated with respect. The tools all seem fine. The nail buffer is worn and marked but intact, the end of the nail file is chipped, and the little oval box has that red substance in it. All in all still very useable and a gorgeous near-antique collectors item!
