Useful things


For when you're feeling a little too warm:


A white Brussels Point de Gaze lace and blond tortoiseshell fan with the gold monogram AR, by Alexandre, Paris, circa 1890.


For when you're traveling:


Silver-gilt nécessaire de voyage in the Louis XVI style, each piece engraved with monogram NM within an escutcheon below a marquis' coronet, comprising a table mirror, a pair of three-light candelabra, three pairs of cut-glass perfume flagons with silver-gilt caps, three hair brushes, a pin box, and a pair of rectangular cloth brushes, in original fitted oak case, circa 1890.


For when you're just feeling a little blah:


Sapphire and diamond necklace, by Mellerio dits Meller, formerly in the collection of Princess Marie Bonaparte, Princess George of Greece and Denmark, and then of her daughter, Princess Eugénie of Greece and Denmark, circa 1870.
