Pretty 1940s record case

Pretty 1940s record case

Attractive 1940s LP case.   It is mainly made of cardboard with a leather handle.   In general good condition, the cardboard is still lovely, the handle still looks very good and the locks still fasten.

We love the upright shape, making it an attractive storage piece anywhere in the home, but would look particularly good on top of a wardrobe.

French priest rosary Out Of Stock

French priest’s rosary

A beautiful accessory for the home.
