ROQUANCOURT Wooden Box with Bonnet, Paris, ca. 1879

antique ROQUANCOURT wooden box 18791 antique ROQUANCOURT wooden box 1879

The absolutely rare about this convolute is the wooden box in which this hood has survived the test of time. A rare hat box from this period. In this box the hood was stored and transported on a small stand made of wood and wire. This is indicated by the metal handle. Inside the wooden box is lined with paper. Manufacturer's label inside of lid translates: "Roquancourt Demarcq; Inventor of numerous patented packing systems for Ladies' hats and hairpieces; Store for travel items, no 9 Rue Neuve-St-Augustin; Manufacturer of travel items and packing cases of all kinds, no 8 Rue Neuve-St-Augustin; Box Making and Packaging Republic of France Bronze Medal, 1878; Honorable Mention at World Expo 1867; 8 and 9 Rue St-Augustin, Paris". An identical wooden box/hatchbox is in the Elgin County Museum, in the USA. The wooden box is in good antique condition. Signs of age.

The hood is the original hood from this box. Made of straw, circa 1875, the hood is kept in rusty brown, autumnal tones. Beautifully decorated with net lace, small baubles made of wood and color-coordinated silk parts (chin bands and bows). Inside lined with thin tulle. The hood is moderately well preserved. This is due to the straw whose webs have partially unraveled.
