Victoria, wearing a ladylike lace collar, sits on a tattered hatbox. She is wearing the hat, which is adorned with a flouncy feather and flowers. In her arms is a sweet presentation of roses. In my imagination, she is making her best appearance, and someone has paid tribute to her loveliness with the bouquet.
Victoria . . . The Lady is a two-piece “Trinket Box” Boyds Bearstone. Inside the base, where tiny keepsakes can be placed, is impressed the tiny paw-print Boyds Bearstones insignia. The tiny paw impression is found on the outside as well.
Boyds issued only three Bearstone "Trinket Boxes.” Later issues of this type were called treasure boxes.
Victoria . . . The Lady is the first of these trinket boxes. At the time of this writing, I have for sale the last of the three trinket boxes issued, which is Angelica . . . The Guardian.
