Plastic (bakelite?) store display for Vulfix shaving brushes. This sat in a drugstore's shaving goods area for years with no product on it until a friend suggested I ask them for it.
wow cool.. nice score.

in fact there's probably an audience on Ebay that would be more than willing to bid for it..
Thanks for the suggestion! I think I'll wait. I've had it almost 30 years now, and I still like looking at it.
I hadn't thought about scale. It would have been so easy to put a quarter on it!

It's nine inches by nine inches at its tallest and widest points. The compartments are an inch and a half wide, and the plastic on the flat middle part is an eighth of an inch thick.
You can determine easily if it's made of Bakelite - vigorously rub it with your finger for a moment. If it smells like oil/petroleum, it's Bakelite!
