The lid of the Antique Dressing Box is lined with a purple / blue ruched velvet, this springs forward to reveal a reversible mirror & letter envelope for storing letters, it also has special engraved mirror holder levers which we have not seen before on a vanity.
The interior contains twelve beautiful glass silver & gilded monogrammed bottles with the letters M.A.R. The glass bottles and toiletry containers are all in good condition. A lift out tray is in the centre on which there is a set of silver gilded accoutrements.
This beautiful vanity box contains a jewellery drawer to the front, to access this you need unlock it using the key then push the brass button in between the two hinges at the back of the box, the drawer springs forward revealing blue velvet & silk lined compartments for storing jewellery and pocket watch.
