This is a fabulous piece of 1930s design.
This is a fabulous and indeed very rare Art Deco Lidded Box - I think probably a powder bow.
The top section is made of a polished white early plastic material and the bottle half is in black. It is certainly very tactile - all lovely and smooth like a pebble.
I love the cute finger holes in the black lid - these are decorative and also help you to lift the lid off with ease. The lid has a little thread underneath which allows you to gentley screw it off and locks the lid on tight when not in use.
These are very similar to the better known ashtrays which were used on the ocean liner, the Queen Mary. Stamped to the base: Made in England / BEX
This little lidded bowl is certainly in lovely condition and they are now highly sought after.
Diameter is 5 1/2 inches - and the height is just under 3 inches.
Weight unpacked is 300 grams.
Very fair price for this iconic design - and given that these are now so hard to find.
