Mr M’s Glamour Case

Another in the occasional series from my slight obsession with artists cases. This one is Eric Morecambe’s makeup case. I like the fact its on old cigar case, presumably one owned by the man himself and that he never felt the need to replace it with some swanky bit of kit. Seems to speak of the post war sense of ‘make do and mend’. “A touch of carmine on the nose to de-note comedy” as an actor friend would quote into the mirror just before going on.
