When we first met 2 years ago, we were both obsessed with it, and that obsession hasn't waned at all.
We both spend many hours every week looking for the best, the rarest, the most spectacular, and as Sue says 'oomph-y' bakelite pieces we can possibly find.
This Art Deco Cutex box is a great example. Extremely rare in itself, but this particular one even more so, as it still has all its original contents. (Please excuse the box in the background!)
All 3 nailpolish bottles are unopened, and the original Cutex-stamped emery board and orange stick are included.
Lovely Art Deco card or cigarette box. I love the design on the lid.
Beautiful Art Deco frosted glass trinket box.
The lid is bakelite and features a nude lady in raised relief.
Bakelite 'wunup' cigarette case. Rarely found in Australia, these look plain but are functionally awesome. Cigarettes sit vertically in the case, and each is individually spring-loaded. As you slide the little top piece across and open, they pop up one by one. Nothing this dinky ever gets made these days!
