Small feathered walnut, brass bound, Vanity Box by the famous makers “Betjemann & Sons” of London. This little vanity box is half the size of normal vanity boxes and the attention to detail is fabulous.

The walnut veneer has been enhanced using a feather and ink to paint and intensify the grain. The interior is fitted with ten beautifully engraved sterling silver glass jars by Thomas Whitehouse 1870. Lifting this tray reveals an assortment of accoutrements and a little button to the back of the box which, when pushed, reveals a sprung loaded jewellery drawer. In the lid there is a secret letter compartment and reversible mirror.

To access the secret letter compartment:

The lock keep on the lid at the top edge of the box has three screws, place your thumb underneath the middle screw under the front edge of the box, you will feel a indentation squeeze this and the ruched leather pad will spring forward, this can be removed to allow access to the letter compartment and the mirror can be turned facing if preferred.

This box comes with a fully working lock and tasselled key.
