I acquired this delightful item in a box of bric-a-brac at an auction recently and I cannot find anything out about it! I have trawled the internet and cannot see anything like it! It is an egg shaped glass box with engraved flowers, Queen Mary's image and the words Majesty Queen Mary on it. Obviously it would have originally been Her Majesty Queen Mary but the first word must have worn. The image of Queen Mary is a youthful one so this must have been early in the reign. Maybe this was a coronation souvenir? Why is it egg shaped? What did it contain? I am fascinated and wonder if anyone can enlighten me? Thank you!
