This HTF 1920s Deco Litho Tin- Candy Box (Beautebox), made for the Canco Company, was part of the Henry Clive series featuring 20s film stars. Here we have an exceptional portrait illustration of the legendary film star RUDOLPH VALENTINO as he appeared in the film 'The Sheik'. This famous portrait by Henry Clive was inspired by the film poster Clive also created for the Valentino film (see last photo below).
Clive worked as a poster designer for Paramount Studios in the 20s, soon after his employment with Flo Ziegfeld painting the ladies of the Ziegfeld Follies. (see Henry Clive signature across from the Valentino signature in 2nd photo.)
