4" long, 2 1/3" wide, 2 3/8" tall

Rarely found in this complete and preserved condition is this French fashion necessaire, a handsome case that holds numerous toiletries and grooming items for travel.  Covered in vibrant "French" blue, it has a perfectly operating rotating metal latch and is divided into several inner compartments and leather fittings to secure all its useful occupants during the trip on a bumpy trail.

The list of items:  Antique bone and ivory grooming tools including a hair comb, lice comb, toothbrush, hairbrush, clothes brush and shoe horn. Continuing with a paper edged mirror, a sponge, paper covered delicate soap, another kind of more hearty soap, a bottle of tonic, cheek powder and a bone handled, eider down powder puff resting in a glass receptacle with ornate, pressed silver lid.  The underside of the hump backed lid is covered in silk moire fabric, with the main body of the inside covered in a semi-gloss paper...all being original.  Exciting to see!

Crystal Bead Fashion Doll Chandelier

The beauty of accessorizing for antique dolls is that there is a lot of play allowed in proportions, where an item like this bead and crystal chandelier can be put with dolls of various sizes, still being visibly correct. At approximately 6" tall, it could be a delicate lighting fixture for your fashion's dining or bedroom setting, all the way to a dramatic statement of opulence hanging by your grouping of well heeled mignonettes.  The detailed, flowing metal frame  has four pliable metal candleholders, and strands of blue and cream glass beading, punctuated with numerous crystal drops below.  Fun and surprisingly easy to find a place for!
