1920s Art Deco Train Case

I saw this 1920s train case on eBay and I just thought it was so fun I had to share. The case folds out into a vanity mirror and kit. Everything is in it's place ready to use in train car as the train is moving.

Here it is folded out. Can you see the hidden jewelry compartment on the right? 

I haven't lifted it but it looks like it would be heavier than what I would take on a train ride. But then the owner of this might have had a ladies maid with her and I don't usually travel with one. It's a beautiful find. Alas, it was already sold by the time I came across it. Still, it's fun to admire from afar.
