This rare Victorian box in the shape of a book is made solely of paper & glass. These date to the mid-19th century and were just for candy or pastilles, but often they were retained as keepsakes. They are so pretty, it’s easy to see why! The owner wrote her name inside the lid. The frozen charlotte doll sewn onto a little silk pillow is a later addition. It’s fixed inside the box & I’ve left it as is to avoid potential damage to the fragile glass. The box is in excellent condition with no cracks & sturdy hinges.
