New Orleans Carnival Rex 1904 Mardi Gras Krewe Favor- Trinket Tin, Stamped Metal For Sale
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.
Also selling locally in community that hosted biggest Mardi Gras celebration West of the Mississippi (shut down recently by city council for having too much fun), so I reserve the right to end sale if I find a buyer at local venues.
