Flashcubes - You slid a lever to spin the flash after EACH picture. 4 flashes on each bulb then that was it, you had to pop in another flash cube. No cube? No flash! I can still remember the smell they made after you flashed one.
This looks similar to my Moms' dressing table. When I was a kid I'd spend hours on end sitting on the stool and playing with my Mom's make-up and jewelry. I can still smell her perfume when she was going to a dance with my dad.
