This elegant English necessaire de voyage is veneered with rich coromandel wood with brass inlay. It is protected by rare Bramah locks, making it impeccably suited for carrying everything a person of nobility would need while traveling. The inside features 11 cut crystal boxes and jars with beautifully engraved silver gilt tops and toiletries accented with mother-of-pearl handles. Two secret, leather-lined compartments extend from the right and the front of the case, each activated by pressing discreet buttons located within the interior. The front compartment opens to reveal a fitted jewelry case lined with silk and velvet. The silver gilt tops bear the hallmark of London silversmith William Neal, 1863 and the locking mechanism is signed "Bramah, London."
