    Description

    Elvis Presley Owned/Used Professional Makeup Case. This unique bit of Elvisana comes with details from one of Elvis' most inner of inner circles: Charlie Hodge. Hodge met Elvis back in the '50s before Presley left for the ARMY, later living at Graceland and performing a variety of tasks for Elvis, including stage director, backing vocalist, and even as an extra in several of Elvis' films. The makeup case offered here has the "EP" initials on the outside and measures 9" x 11.5" x 7.5" when closed. When opened, three shelves can be extended to a height of 13", providing the King with compartments for makeup, jewelry, prescriptions, etc. As Charlie puts it, "This case was always nearby Elvis and he never went on the road or anyplace without having it with him. Later when Elvis got a different one I kept this one. It presently has two of Elvis' used bottles of cologne in it, Jovan and Hai Karate." Look closely at the photo (you can magnify it at our HA.com website), and you'll see one of Elvis' aides, perhaps Sonny West carrying the case as he walks behind Elvis. Also included with this lot: a beautiful blue scarf with "Elvis Presley" printed on it, the same type of scarf Charlie would keep on stage and periodically hand to Elvis to give to his fans. LOA from Charlie Hodge.
