Today I've been working on my etsy shop. Taking pictures, filling out my inventory sheets, etc. and I came to a box a friend gave me to see if I could sell the contents on etsy.
It's filled with dresser items from the days of celluloid or maybe bakelite plastic. There are hair receivers, button hooks, nail buffers, trays, brushes, combs, mirrors, etc. I don't know what all of them are, but I can probably research them and get some knowledge.
But a couple of items have me baffled and I hope you can help me.
The first is this orange thing. Let's call it Thing 1.
It's about the size of a deck of cards. It looks like it might be some kind of tray.
What could Thing 1 possibly be used for? I sure hope you guys know. Is it even old?
And then there's this thing. Let's call it Thing 2.
It has an octagon shape. (Knowing that is a third grade standard.)
The feet are brass and it has a glass lining.
It had to have had some sort of function, right???
Isn't this workmanship beautiful? This is only on one panel of Thing #2.
Was this just a decor item? Did it have a purpose?
Another pretty, including the photo too.
Just another shot of all the goodies.
Thanks for any information you can share with me. I really appreciate it.
And thank you so much for coming by! I just made myself a delicious iced mocha. Would you like one too?
Ooops! Mine is almost gone now. Don't worry, I can make you another.
And I'll also be linking up with the lovely Colorado Lady for
Vintage Thingie Thursday!
