RARE 1920s Art Deco Blue Mirror Vanity Box Electric Lights Machine Age Broadway:

This listing features a large and heavy 1930s era blue mirror lighted vanity "make up box", made by the same company that created the iconic Spartan Blue Glass Radio. I acquired this from a raoffer radio collector originally from Detroit. This collector bought this box directly from an ex-Sparks employee he tracked down, who worked the Jackson, Michigan plant during the 1940s. The story the picker was told is the Sparks employee created this for his beautiful wife from Spartan radio stock. Multiples of this box were made, however not more than 10 or 20. His wife was an ex-broadway actress. The collector wanted radios, but thought he might be able to use this blue mirror box for other project radios. All I know is the cord is cut so it will not light up, the box needs cleaning, and new metal molding (most of it is now rusted), and is really only useful as a rare museum piece showing early 20thC American modern design with the use of atypical materials (blue mirror) for creating a machine age look. The last picture shows one side with half the glass cleaned. Much of the top glass has staining.
