Old Grooming Kit Sign In/Join 
Found this at a consignment shop. Staff couldn't tell me anything about it. The seller had a lot of WWI era British items. Looks like a Male Grooming Kit, but looking for specifics. The handheld mirror has a Patent # on it, but its not a US Patent #. Thank You.

this is definitely a man's grooming set. The long brush is for clothes and the short for hair. The long glass case is for a toothbrush.

Looks like there is a button hook (for shoes), tweezers and nail files.

The button hook would indicate that it is from the first decade or so of the 20th century.

If the case is leather I would think it might be worth about $100
