An old dressing table pot, made of ebony.
It would originally have formed part of an ebony dressing table set.
It was originally intended as a "hair tidy" , but it equally useful to hold odds-and-ends like matches, nail files, earrings, etc.
It is just under three inches tall on the outside.
The word EBONY is marked on the base.
Very good condition.
Some surface marks, from normal use.
The lid opens and closes very easily.
Please see the photographs to get a good idea of the condition of this item.
