Oh, so Victorian! A few years back, my husband gave me an antique dressing table for my birthday and I can imagine that lovely boxes such as yours, once adorned it's top. Not something I would attempt, but this is just stunningly beautiful and quite nicely crafted! Thanks for dropping this off by our house here at 613 Avenue Create! We love it!

I am intrigued with the order of the pearls around the edge... 2 then 3 then 4 up to 6 between the larger pearls. And the pin into her fur hat... funny where my mind goes! The cream colors of the lace and flowers with that spot of red in her dress and the hat pin are delightful details! Thank you for playing “Anything Goes” at our house!
