New Orleans Carnival Rex 1904 Mardi Gras Krewe Favor- Trinket Tin, Stamped Metal:
New Orleans Carnival Rex 1904 Mardi Gras Krewe Favor - hairpin box, stamped metal
A stupendous example of this favor, I've only seen a couple of these ever. Not mint, but you know what, it's darned close.
- 109 year old 2-1/2" diameter round stamped metal friction lid box.
- Lid fits perfectly, and all stamped details undamaged except for some micro scuffs/scratches.
- Patina is near perfect, shiny on edge of lid where fingers grasped over the years. Little crown/handle is in really great shape.
- Given as a favor to krewe members at the Rex (King) Ball after the main parade in New Orleans.
