The sweet little coin purse is also silk lined and approx 3" x 2".

The items are in very fine condition and may have never been used. The box is also in great ventage condition.

Also included is the original brass plate used for printing calling cards for the owner. This allowed us to trace the provenance of this wonderful set.

It belonged to Emma, the wife ofWheeler de F. Edward a prominent attorney who settled in Everett, Washington in the early 1880's. Emma Leffert Knox was born in 1854, graduated from Columbia and married in 1881.
