Coromandel Dressing Case with Original Leather case and Solid Gold Bramah Key.

Antique vanity jewellery box veneered in stunning coromandel with robust solid brass quadrant edging and engraved Monogram which reads: G. M. de T. ( Gertrude Mary deTrafford )

Lifting the lid of this magnificent silver dressing-case reveals ten wonderful engine turned sterling silver topped glass jars and boxes by London silversmith Jane Brownett 1876.
The back edge of the box has a retailers plaque that reads: “F West. Manufacturer to her Majesty and the Royal Family. 1 St. James St.” Each of the jar tops is stamped with the F West mark.
The underside of the lid houses a free-standing gilt mirror with a ruched velvet backing. Once removed it reveals two ivory hand mirrors, a shoehorn and glove stretchers.
Amongst the glass jars is a removable tool pad that houses a pair of tweezers, pricker, scissors, corkscrew, sewing hook, and penknife.

This Silver Dressing case was commissioned as a wedding present to Gertrude Mary deTrafford of Haselour Hall from her husband Augustus Henry deTrafford in 1876.
Each of the silver jar tops inside are engraved with “Gertrude“.

The solid gold key must have been commissioned at the same time as the box as it too has Gertrudes monogram. The lock and key are in good working condition.
