AB-1212               NEW!      $35

Interesting collectible! This was a gift for hotel guests, celebrating the first anniversary of the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas in June 1977! The base measures 4 x 4 and is clear with a black layer on the bottom. I assume this is some sort of epoxy composite, typical of material used when embedding an item inside so you can still see the item. The base is not lightweight. Inside is a white, pink, green and yellow $500 Aladdin chip! On the top is a silver colored plate engraved "first anniversary June 1977 Aladdin Hotel Las Vegas, Nevada. There is also a holder for a pen. The pen appears to be original and it still writes in blue ink. A few surface marks, but no chips or missing pieces. 

AB-10343                      $119

8-1/2" long sterling and pink enamel shoe horn! The top is sterling with bright pink enamel on both sides. Nice pattern in the guilloche enamel, no chips or flakes to the enamel. The shoe horn area is not sterling and shows base metal, pitting and rust areas. Not sure how to clean it. The handle is marked F?B sterling. The Foster ? Bailey company was from Providence, Rhode Island and was founded in 1873.  From 1878 to 1898 the firm was active as Foster ? Bailey as partnership of Theodore W. Foster and Samuel H. Bailey. From 1898 the company was incorporated under the name Theodore Foster ? Bros. Co. The company made wonderful sterling accessory, vanity and dresser set items. They also made jewelry and some of the best enamelled compacts in the 1920s. The shoehorn would have been part of a much larger, perhaps a 20 piece dresser vanity set, all with pink enamel. What a great set it would have been for your vanity in the 1920s!
