Additional Information: 
This box is one of two for the Duncan garniture de toilette (vanity set). The difference in the two boxes is in their height and therefore the same lid could fit either. This was the large 9 piece set not including atomizers (see description with bottles). This pattern was supposedly inspired by the dancer Isadora Duncan. This pattern is still in production.
