Description

The is a truly remarkable find not only for the immaculate condition of the case and its pieces, but it has retained its original box and even the original (slightly faded) tissue!

Made in England under the brand name Two-Tix, the cream coloured genuine hide case is lined with matching watermarked moire fabric and has and has retainers for a mirror, comb, hair brush, two round chrome/white screw top containers and two rectangular chrome/white polypropyline bottles with a reeded design. The back of the brush, the lids of the two round containers and the tops of the bottles, feature intricate embroidered floral designs with clear protective covers. The bevelled mirror is in good condition, the silvering OK. There is no soiling on the comb or the brush, which indicates it has probably never been used since it was first bought. There is no scuffing or discoloration of the stitched leather case and the zip works perfectly. Even the decorated cardboard box is in fairly good condition, and these are usually the first things to get damaged or discarded, and there is only a little scuffing along the corners, plus one has a small split along the crease, but not all the way. It retains its 'Two-Tix' label.

Vintage pieces like this are quite rare and this lovely travelling set would make an ideal gift for anyone interested in artefacts from the not-too-distant past. A lady who attends vintage fairs etc dressed in the appropriate costume would find it enchanting, I'm sure!

Shipping policies

On LARGE BULKY ITEMS such as antique chests of drawers or sets of chairs or tables, I usually list the shipping cost as £50.00 - PLEASE NOTE, this is generally the price for LONDON AND THE SOUTH-EAST, and is not the same for other parts of the country. If you wish to purchase a large item, and don't live in that area, please contact me first for a quotation of the delivery charge, which, if you decide to go ahead, I can adjust on the listing so you can easily check out with the right prices being charged to you :-) I know this is an awkward situation, but the Esty listing template only allows for one price in the shipping cost box. This is all very well if one is posting small items via Royal Mail, but it doesn't work for big bulky things which have to be shipped by a carrier. I've written to Esty about this problem, suggesting they revise the template to include a box saying 'shipping charge varies' but I don't know if they will be able to do this or not.
ANOTHER OPTION for getting big items of furniture from us, is to pick them up yourself from our storage facility in Leominster, Herefordshire, by prior arrangement.

FURTHER NOTES
If you would like a large item of furniture etc delivered, I only ship within the UK. Usually within 5 days, although since you will be deciding on the actual delivery date with the carrier (more info on that below!) it will vary. Also, I might be on vacation or there could be a national holiday.
Deliveries are made through a third party carrier. Any problems regarding (a) Damaged items, (b) Non delivery, (c) Late delivery, (d) Missing parcels of a multiple shipment must be reported immediately and the matter will be pursued. Photographic evidence will be required in the case of damage to the outside of the parcel so please bear this in mind when opening.

The intending purchaser must satisfy themselves as to (a) The size of the item, (b) The colour of the item, (c) The suitability of the item before completing the sale.

Misrepresentation

Due to the nature of Antique and Vintage items passing through previous hands having had several owners, they will invariably show an indication of their age and signs of wear. We always attempt to portray the items accurately, in all cases, underlining any obvious defects with illustrations, however it is impossible to highlight every single blemish and as such, the purchaser must be aware that the items we offer for sale are second hand and are not new. In most cases these imperfections are regarded as positive and a sign of the piece’s ‘character’. All antique and upcycled pieces that may have worm holes present are always treated irrespective of whether it is active or not. Measurements are always given as a very near approximation and should never be interpreted as absolute. If an accurate dimension is required for any of the items, we will be happy to clarify it, but this must be done before the sale is finalised by contacting us.
