Victorian Glove and Collar Boxes



The Victorian Era was so beautiful and items were made with exquisite detail and beauty, like these antique celluloid collar and glove boxes that we have for sale at this time. 

Many have lovely romantic images of couples and pretty images of lovely women, often times adorned in fanciful ruffled clothing and hats.




The Victorian era would not be without the use of floral images, especially roses, being used a lot in their design.


The boxes have circular fabric covered moldings inside for women to store their starched lace collars.  These utilitarian pieces were not only beautiful, but functional as well. 



Below is a glove box with a beautiful Victorian couple on the front with a bit of an Asian influence with the embossed edging.





Because these boxes are over 100 yeas old, there will often times be cracking or wear on the outside, but when looking at these, keep in mind that they were used in day-to-day life. 



They look pretty in a display.  We have a few of these at the front desk but there are others in the store as well.



Remember, our outside parking lot sale with be this Saturday, March 2, from 8AM till 3PM.  Free donuts and coffee will be available inside the store for our customers. 

Looks like a nice weekend, too!  Hope to see you out there!
