Boxes, Cases, Etui, Necessaire and everything else that was used to carry essential items for travel, sewing, medicine, writing, and toiletries. Craftsmen created containers of precious metals, leather, and silks and decorated them with jewels and engraving to make exquisite and expensive items as well as practical carrying cases. Competition was fierce to see who had the most elegant snuff box, the most beautiful luggage, or carried the most expensively decorated boxes or cases containing essential daily items.

About the Author
I now live in a sunny part of Australia after spending many years in developing countries in the South Pacific. My greatest loves are traveling, anywhere and everywhere, meeting crazy characters, and visiting the Australian outback. I adore history, especially the many-layered society of the late Regency to early Victorian eras. In and around London, my titled heroes and heroines may live a privileged and gay life but I also love digging deeper into the grittier and seamier levels of British life and write about the heroes and heroines who challenge traditional manners, morals, and occupations, either through necessity or desire.
