This is a lovely wooden vintage shaving box that was used by a barber in Maharahtra, NW India. Barbers would use the boxes to store their scissors, razor blades and other tools. The lid opens to reveal a fold-up mirror and a large compartment.
Each one of Scaramanga’s unique old boxes has been lovingly restored to make it a perfect treasure box with a great worn look and feel which adds to their appeal - they would make a great jewellery, cufflink or make-up box.
Approximate size: W15cm x D21cm x H12cm
All of our current stock have been restored with a green framed mirror. We do not have any with their original frames.
We have several of these available so the one you receive may differ slightly to the one you can see in the images. Scaramanga’s old chests, trunks and boxes are not new or made to look old. They may have small marks and scratches on them, which are consistent with their age and original use. We feel these add to their character and appeal. Please look at the photos to get an idea of their condition.
