Description

    A Rudolph Valentino Set of Boxes, Circa 1925. The first a cigarette case, made of black enamel, decorative red enamel emblem with marcasite detailing on lid, gold-washed interior; the second a decorative box, possibly used for travel, made of wood and painted black, with an Art Nouveau floral image further painted on top lid, bottom has rings on either side where an attached string keeps box together - an usual piece but very vintage-looking; both pieces gifted by Valentino to Federico Beltran Masses, the noted Spanish painter who was close friends with Valentino, painted two portraits of the actor, and lived with him in Los Angeles for a period of time in 1925; consigned directly to Heritage Auctions by Beltran Masses' family. (Please note the clasp on the cigarette case no longer works but can likely be fixed by a jeweler and there is slight chipping on the corners of the wooden box.)
    Cigarette Case: 2" x 3" x ¼"; Bigger Box: 7" x 3" x 1 ½"
