Mlle. Antoinette always plans her wardrobe for a trip well in advance. Besides her many toilettes for all conceivable events - dinners, soirees, outings, visits, breakfasts, luncheons and teas, not to mention the expected private tete-a-tetes that will certainly be part of every voyage - she knows that she will also need a well-stocked vanity case to see her through all occasions. Presented today is just the sort of case that she will be needing. It is a small, solid-sided trunk covered in a practical black leatherette, with a handle on the lid and steel clasp to keep it firmly closed. When opened, the treasures are revealed: an extravagant array of accessories to assist her in preparing for any and every event. The assortment includes a pair of bone handled brushes in two sizes along with a comb, a pair of opera glasses (which will certainly come in handy), a set of calling cards, a pair of scissors, a tiny vial for perfume, a square of mirror glass, an extra pair of pink glass earrings, a fancy pierced fan, a powder container, a natural sea sponge, and even an extra rolled pair of white cotton stockings. Antoinette will be ready for any occasion. Surely, your Lady will need a case just like this one!
The vanity case measures 4 5/8" long x 2 1/4" deep x 2 1/8" high (12 x 5.5 x 5.2 cm). There is a wonderful large label on the bottom of the case indicating its origin in England. The case itself does show signs of wear, with some scuffing and wear to the leatherette, bookbinder's cloth tape repairs to the front flap of the lid and a bit of weakness to the handle where it attaches to the lid. The interior is is largely good shape, with one interior dividing slat likely missing. There is foxing to the antique mirror. Several teeth on the comb are missing. There are a couple of breaks to the silk ribbon holding the blades of the hand fan. There is room on the inside of the case to add a few more of your own accessories, if you wish.
