Makers mark reads : Mappin & Webb Ltd 172 Regents Street W.
This Mappin & Webb case is in near perfect condition. The leather is a blue colour and the lid has the intials F.P stamped on it. The lining of the case is in dark blue leather, the contents holders are in white silk and edged in blue leather. The case comes complete with its original canvas travel cover.
The contents of the case are as follows: 7 Silver topped bottles circa 1916, Tortoise shell backed mirror, shoe horn, 5 brushes, comb, hook, Soligen cut throat razor. Leather covered writing pad, sewing kit, card holder, address book, collar stud box, other boxes, matches, inkwell and travelling clock. Every item is in good condition and stamped with the former owner's intials F.P
With all the contents in place this case is fairly heavy, but I doubt the previous owner worried about that. At almost 100 years old, this case is simply stunning and very rare to be this complete.
