messageHand painted wooden trunk 'High heel Hurricane'- want to trace history of itattachment
Posted by Minitoots 30 July, 2019 20:36

My friend got this hand painted wooden trunk from an antiques shop but the owner didn't know anything about the history of it (assuming it IS old) We love the title 'High Heel Hurricane' /Eyeful and the kitschy drawing of the girl on the top of it. It opens at the side and is about 1.5 m long. We wondered if it was used for a stage show or something.Havve tried searching online but can't find anything like it.
Just thought someone on the forum might have an idea?

Looks like Eyeful was an American pin up mag in the 40s. Some of the pictures in the links below may be (mildly) not safe for work.
