Usage conditions apply
Red plastic case for manicure tools designed by Julius Sharat (1899-1981), a Jewish industrial designer who fled Germany in 1937, settled in New York City, shortened his name from Sharatzick, signed naturalization papers in 1944, and died in Miami, Florida. A paper note states that this case was Sharat's most successful item, having been produced in very large quantities.
