Victorian Era Dress Cartridge Box


Leather cartridge box with three rows of bullion embroidery on the box cover, and gilt metal royal monogram of Queen Victoria: “VRI” surmounted by the Tudor crown. The monogram dates the box to post-1877, at which time Victoria became Empress of India, and her monogram was altered from “VR” to “VRI”. The leather on the reverse shows wear and tab is missing, but overall very good condition.
