When a girl opens this Lady Buxton jewel case, her face lights up (1965)
There’s no other jewel case in the world that has this effect on a girl.
But then, no other jewel case has hidden lights that glow when she lifts the mirrored top to help her see, choose, bejewel herself.
And there’s so much room. There are two large pull-out drawers plus space on top — all velvet-lined and compartmented to separate the baubles from the beads.
It’s big. Golden. And a dazzling way for anyone who wants to spend $25 on a girl to spend it.
