What collector can get enough small boxes to hold accessories? I, for one, cannot! This small example is not like any other I have found. It is in the form of a hinged clamshell that is covered in purple velvet and closes with a swing hook latch. Inside, the lid is lined with a gathered cotton sateen, while the base is covered with more of the purple velvet. There are a pair of brass clamps that originally held a pair of thimbles, as this was a thimble box to begin with. However, now the clamps might hold a bit of jewelry or handkerchiefs in place in your Lady's traveling trousseau trunk. It is so charming!

the box is in good, functional condition, though I will point out that the velvet on the outside of the box has mellowed to a more milk chocolate hue, and the sateen on the interior shows a slight bit of discoloration and wear. the box measures 3" x 2" (7.5 x 5 cm).
