Rare antique French doll's "Toilette" box
Complete with original contents !
This is an incredibly rare and sought after antique French doll's "Toilette" set in original papered box, dating from the late 19th Century to early 20th Century. Labelled "Cosmetique Surfindema poupee, Paris". The interior of the lid is lined with the prettiest pink striped brocade, with worn inset oval bevelled mirror and trimmed with whit damask and pink ribbon rosettes. The base is lined in white card with attached elastic and pink ribbon retaining straps, now somwhat stretched and brittle with age, a couple have in fact snapped. The contents include : Handblown & handpainted wash bowl & jug, potty, bowl, soap dish and long brush tray. Three ivorine brushes with natural bristles. One glass perfume bottle with decoupage label. One tiny lace trimmed cushion with decoupage label. One tiny oval powder box, with original contents ! One faux tortoise shell comb One tiny faux tortoise shell hair comb And only one divine little hand-stitched red shoe, stamped "E Jumeau, Med.Or 1879, Paris" It is in wonderful condition with only a single chip to the glass brush tray, and the afore mentioned wear to the internal straps. I've secured the lining board with some tiny tacks as the original glue had weakened with age.
