We are proud to introduce another accessory for your favorite dolls.
"Necessaires" were refined small "work-boxes," used for the storage of tools for beautification, sewing, personal hygiene and health. These boxes were similar to "les boites a parfiler," literally boxes for unraveling old ribbons and outworn tapestry trim, popular during the reign of Louis XV, King of France.
Form measures 4 x 2.5 x 2 inches.
Requires approximately 10 yds of 1/4" braid. This Necessaire would be suitable proportionally for both antique and modern dolls measuring 18-24" tall.
Contact us for information on the items shown with the necessaire.
The cost includes: Everything you need for making your own necessaire: Form, straw, 2 types of leather, hardware, padding and lining materials as well as detailed step by step instructions.
2 Smaller sizes will be available this summer. One is the perfect size for the 12" French Fashion Dolls.
