Celluloid was created to be a substitute for the more expensive ivory. It was often utilized to create dressing items, for both men and women. In this instance, creamy celluloid is formed into a lady's powder box. It is in a "classic" round shape, being 4" in diameter and 12-1/4" in circumference and 2" tall. gram. In two pieces, the top of the box has a knob, for opening the box. As was very typical, the box is personalized with the owner's monogram. This may indicate it was given as a gift.

The endurance of this material is shown in the fact that this piece of Victoriana/Edwardian is still here for a lady to enjoy. Just remember celluloid is very flammable, so nothing with a flame nearby!
