Victorian ROSEWOOD & Mother of Pearl Vanity Travel Companion Box with contents

This wonderful Box dates to the Mid Victorian period c 1860/70’s and comes complete with contents. Beautiful ROSEWOOD Casing ,with Mother of Pearl decorations on the handles ,Lock and the blank Cartouche.
During the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century, dressing case bottles and jars tended to be plainer in appearance, with more emphasis on functionality and practicality. It was really around the Regency period that more attention began to be given to the glassware, as well as their lids and tops

All the bottles except one match and are original. There is some minor rubbing to the edges of the silver plated (on Copper) lids, nothing major and commensurate with use and age. Designed with pure luxury in mind. The exterior of the box became almost as important as the interior and these boxes started being veneered with beautiful exotic woods from all over the world in this case Rose wood.
There is a secret compartment for jewels, this is accessed by pulling out the pin in the interior of the box.Red Moroccan Leather inner lid with secret compartment behind, soft felt and velvet pad The lid drops down to reveal a storage space
There are a few light scratches on the top of the outer lid. This was retailed by W. CHILDS, Fancy Repository, 51 Kings Road, corner of Middle street BRIGHTON.
The box measures 30 x 21 x 16cm.
