This lovely image of a Victorian dressing case/necessaire was Presented by The Ladies & Gentlemen of Her Majesty’s Household! It depicts a dressing case that could have been used by either a lady or a gentleman. The most dramatic feature is a mirror with an elaborate gilded frame which most likely fitted into the lid – the lid is lined with blue ruched velvet. The box shown contains multiple individual containers and two beautiful glass bottles. It is not known to whom it was presented but possibly to the Royal family. The condition of the image is very good for age apart from very minimal faint spotting. This image is currently held within a gold mat which presents it beautifully for framing; however for shipping, it can be removed from the mat and rolled into a tube for more economical postage – please contact us with your decision. Completely framed, this would make an elegant statement in any home and would complement another chromolithograph (depicting a necessaire) currently listed on this site. Chromolithograph itself measures width 11.75 ins (29.5cm) x height 16.25 ins (41.5cm). With mat measures 18 ins (45.6cm) x 12.75 ins (32.2cm). This item appears in my book, “Antique Boxes Inside and Out” on page 391.
