Rare Antique Cleopatra Vanity Box
Secure Payments By
A very rare Cleopatra Vanity Box crafted in 1910. This iconic vanity is the first vanity box made. Originally marketed as being a powder container, a cream holder and also a place in which to store pins. The striking image of Cleopatra is deliciously Art Nouveau and still beautiful even at this great age. The whole vanity box has an engine turned design making it easier to grip. The piece is decorated with a gilded finish which hardly shows the passage of time. The lid lifts off to reveal a rotating perforated compartment in which to store face powder. The base consists of a removable mirror which is in remarkably good condition, a plate that sits on top of the mirror with embossed lettering " CLEOPATRA VANITY BOX CO. PAT. JULY 5TH 1910 NEW YORK. N.Y. U.S.A. ". The vanity box is an unusual design as the mirror is fitted in the base so that it can be used when the vanity box is shut. The mirror and gilt embossed plate sit within a gilt frame. Measures 5.1 cm wide and weighs 10 grams.
Rare Antique Gifts has clarified that the Rare Antique Cleopatra Vanity Box (LA354782) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being 1912
