Manicure Set with Original Excise Tax Tag

Not only were handbags taxed at 20 percent from 1944-1954, but also items that fell into this category of "luxury" items, including luggage, wallets, key fobs and manicure sets.

1940s manicure set from the collection of The Vintage Purse Museum with original excise tax tag.

23 Nov 1948, Tue The Algona Upper Des Moines (Algona, Iowa)
