Gentleman's Dressing Case

Category: Other Travel Items

Subcategory: Boxes

This black leather Dressing Case has a lift out tray that reveals a number of toiletry tools below. Some original such as a Durham Duplex Razor with blades and some that are replaced. The top tray has two silver topped containers, one of which is indistinctly hallmarked but looks to be 1915.

The box has a mirror housed to the lid interior and very good quality stay hinges. The lock is a Bramah and marked J T Needs & Co 100 New Bond Street and Late J Bramah 124 Piccadilly which are the details they used between 1901 and 1919. These dates tie in with Durham Duplex who were founded in 1910. Circa 1915.
