Item details

Vintage from the 1950s

It's rare to find grooming kits with all the contents and in good condition. But this men's travel case is both complete with its original contents and in great condition.

Made of textured black leather and patented as Bak-Prop in 1950, the zippered case has slots inside the lid for a shoe horn, tweezers, a mirror that doubles as a picture frame (with the photo of an adorable smiling baby inside), cuticle tool, and nail file. The bottom compartment has a lift-out tray that holds a comb, toothbrush case, soap and shaving containers, clothes and hair brush, and shaving lotion bottle. The containers are made of lightweight plastic and the brushes have wooden backs. All the items are original and appear to have had little if any use. The interior cloth label reads "Bak-Prop, Patent No. 2062237, Top Grain Genuine Leather, Made in USA." The outer lower left corner of the case is monogrammed with the initials A.F.M. See photos for various markings; dimensions and condition description listed below.

APPROX. MEASUREMENTS:
11 3/4 x 6 1/4 x 2 1/8 in.

CONDITION: Overall outstanding condition for age, including the fact that all the pieces are present. The leather is in very good condition with only a few scuffs around the corners. The stitching is intact and the zipper works well. All the plastic pieces inside are free from damage. The bottle has its original stopper. The only minor issue is that the metal items (mainly the shoe horn) show discoloration. Please review photos.

A NOTE ABOUT VINTAGE: Everything we sell at AlegriaCollection is vintage, meaning that it's at least 20 years old, often much older. Consequently, most of our items show evidence of previous use and, in general, this is viewed as adding to the aged character of a piece. We make every effort to accurately describe any flaws and encourage you to carefully read the description, particularly when purchasing vintage as a gift.
