So yesterday I posted about that gorgeous little Cartier Pillbox that's available in the Beverly Sills Estate Auction.
The other thing I did yesterday was go uptown to the imaging center to get another round of ultrasounds done to check on the Townhousebaby's development. So far everything's looking good (yippee!!). Despite the fact that the baby is very stubborn and would not move into the positions that the ultrasound tech needed to get all of the measurements she was looking for. I said is this a predictor of future behaviors? She said, "Yes, usually". GREAT.
After the testing we went out to dinner and then leisurely strolled around checking things out. What did we walk right past??
DOYLE NEW YORK!
That's right. I went in and got to preview the auction items. I took a photo with my crappy camera phone (seriously, I apologize for how crappy the pic is) I wanted you to see this little pill box opened. Once you engage the clasp open the two sides pop open and then another flap opens by a hinge at the top. This part has a mirror on it. While the sides look as though they are mirrored as well it's just highly polished gold. The best part, what's inside is no ordinary pill box. It has a little disc inside that has pin-point indents. Why? I'm told it's to keep snuff aerated. The disc allows air to circulate and not let the snuff get clumpy.
How incredible is that? Don't you love it?
I also got to look at the Judith Leiber Ivory Minaudiere. The lining of the bag is a very bright gold leather. It also contains a gold comb with Judith's signature engraved on the side of the comb. Very beautiful.
