    This is a men's accessory case I got a few years back - looks to be from the 1940s-50s to me, but I've never seen another one in all my years. The outside has a faux leather pattern, and the inside is divided like a jewelry box, except with places for cufflinks, watches, tie clips, and collar attachments. The third photo shows a close-up of the pocket for collar attachments and one of the tie clip bands (labelled with gold lettering).

    I particularly like it because of the Hunter on the outside, as that happens to be my name. While photographing the box, I noticed something sandwiched between the lining and the edge of the case - see my next S&T post for the hidden treasure :)

    Has anyone seen an accessory box like this before?

      Thanks for the info Kevin - have you posted any on CW? Would love to see some more. Reminds me that there was a time when men weren't afraid to dress up. :)

      Those are awesome Kevin, I love the western themed pieces - I need to start getting some tie clips. I've got a ton of ties already; I'll post some of my favorites soon...

      I have been picking up a few of these vintage cufflink/accessory cases on eBay lately since I have been buying collection lots. Pick up a lot of singles though. Very nice case and collection!

      thanks MisterEsoteric :) What are the "singles" you mention? The small clamshell-style cases for a single set of cufflinks?

      Hunter: Perhaps I'm not using the correct proper verbiage, but when I referred to "singles" I am referring to single cufflinks missing their mate. I have a lot of those to the point that I have a dedicated case just for those "singles". ????

      Ah yes, that could be completely proper - I have no idea what else you would call them. :)
