Victorian ladies travelling beauty case. Item 1385.
This Victorian ladies travelling beauty case is covered with, what was once a duck egg blue velvet which has now a bit threadbare on the high points. The metal mounts are nickel plated brass, in the Gothic taste. On the inside of each lid there are spaces for small items, such as button hooks, scissors, nail files and sewing items. In the central well the mirror folds up to reveal a glass powder jar and spaces for two small scent bottles. Either side of the mirror are two holders for drop earrings which lift up to reveal storage space for jewellery. In front of these are two more lined storage areas. The interior is in much better condition than the exterior. The box measures 305 mm long, is 237 mm deep and stands 100 mm high. C1890.
