19th century Gentleman`s Shaving Box

19th century Gentleman`s Shaving Box

Price: SOLD
Ref: 10303

An extremely rare, 19th century Gentleman`s shaving box crafted from selected solid mahogany, the lid of flame figure - all now of lovely colour with a rich patina. The lid of the box opens to reveal the original brass demi-lune liner into which warm water would have been poured. The box is raised on its three original bun feet. Such a piece would have accompanied a gentleman on his Grand Tour around Europe or perhaps an Officer on campaign to afford him the luxury of private and comfortable shave as his status would allow.  An interesting item of social history remaining in excellent condition. Circa 1830.

H: 8cm (3.1")   W: 28cm (11.0")
