An aqua molded plastic vanity or travel box with classic early Deco motif. This is possibly made of celluloid. It is old enough and the plastic is a lightweight material.
I'm not sure what this box was intended for. The insert has little posts that are hollow on the underside and a knob handle in the center. It fits perfectly in the box almost like a press. If you have any idea what this is for I'd like to hear from you.
The condition is very good vintage. Some minor scratches and one may be a crack in the base. I can't tell without creating a crack if it isn't one. A very excellent appearance and would display well in your deco bedroom or bath. The box is 3 x 6½ inches. It is 1 5/8 inches high with lid and 1.5 inches without the lid.
