Offered for sale is an extremely difficult-to-find, vintage hair care product called the “FABRE PERMANENT WAVING SET”.
This fabulous beauty salon collectible comes with its original box, a bottle of “FABROL” lotion with original paper label, 4 metal rod CURLERS, 2 metal with wood handle DRYING TUBES, wires, and a group of curling papers. Looking at the apparatus in this kit, it is a wonder any woman was brave enough to perm her hair!!
The paper-covered cardboard box has wear and tear at seams and edges typical of a 80+ year old piece, but it displays wonderfully and sports a highly decorative label on the inner cover featuring the image of a lovely lass curling her hair.
From “Mons. Antoine Fabre – 11 Hills Place – Oxford Circus, London, W.”.
Dates to the early 1920s.
