Art Deco Shagreen Etui, 1930's.
AN ART DECO SHAGREEN ETUI.

An English or French shagreen and white metal etui made to hold a single perfume flask. Shagreen, called galuchat in France, is the skin of the shark or ray. The white metal is probably silver, it is not hallmarked and I have no way of testing it. 1930's.

Approximately 8cm high. The object is in fine condition with light wear from normal use. The green cord or the tassel is a replacement, they don't match in colour.

Please study the photographs.
