This charming antique box dates to the late 19th century and is a Victorian-era travel kit with sewing and grooming tools, also known as an etui or nécessaire. The compact travel case is finished with painted hide and a decorative metal trim, and opens by a hinged lid with a button latch. Neatly tucked into the velvet-lined case, the kit includes a rectangular mirror, scissors, a nail file, an awl, an extractor, a pocket blade, a needle case, and a thimble.

From the collection of Frances and Gary Comer.
