    This is a used mortician make up kit from the 1940-1950s. It has lots of goodies like an old razor (which had hair still stuck in it!) application tools and other tools that may have been used by an embalmer. The make up chart is something else. The jars are numbered and the chart shows you how to mix to gain a similar color to match ethnicity. Its labled from infant to Chinese. The top lifts up giving extra storage underneath. Not sure what the 2 pieces of string or twin was for, but they came with the kit so they are staying in the kit
