This splendid Victorian handkerchief box dates to the 1870s and was meant for gentlemen’s handkerchiefs. It’s been in my collection almost ten years and I am finally ready to find it a new home. I love antique boxes of all sorts, but I have a particular fondness for paper boxes like this, because they are so beautiful for a thing you’re only supposed to keep very briefly and then throw away.

The box opens like a book with two compartments on either side. Refer to photos for size and condition: Overall very good with some minor wear around the edges.
