American art deco Johny Bellhop earrings stand. Designed and produced by Chase for the Phillip Morris cigarette company as an advertising piece. He is named after Johny Roventini who starred in the successful 1930’s ‘Call for Phillip Morris’ campaign. He was made with several uses, one holds a suitcase with a book of matches and a case to hold cigarettes. Another was made holding a glass cruet set – one pot with salt and another with pepper – I have both of these in stock. This one however is to be used as an earring stand on a dressing table.
6.5in tall (16.5cm).
Condition is used and vintage but good.
