Vintage Manicure Set

Leave a comment

I bought this vintage manicure set recently, from an   eBay seller.   It is beautiful, German made with embroidered case and a mirror inside surrounded by plush red pleats.  It contains a nail file, scissors, a scoop cuticle pusher, a tool for cleaning under the nails, and an orange stick.

The remover fluid seeps through to a pad at the tip.  As far as I know, Lady Love or Michael John products are no longer available.
