These cases are pretty spectacular. I can't think of another "salesman sample" type kit for an item this complex. I can only image it melting the brain of who ever the salesman was showing it to.

Also curious if the base of the box is solid wood? (the sculpted pockets for the parts) Were they blow molding/ vacuforming things like this in the 50's ??

The mold for the individual parts is cloth covered wood - an exception is the mold for the Curta which is made of a soft material, it sounds like paper...

The material used is plywood, velvet and imitation leather. I don't know the exact technique of how to make the velvety material into the shape like that.






What amazes me more are the many variations of the green box....
