VERY GOOD: This rare Edwardian duck egg blue earring box is in superb condition. This piece is quite the find, as many Carrington & Co boxes have been lost to history. One of Carrington's most notable achievements for the royal family is creating the Dorset bow brooch for Queen Mary (1867-1953) and resetting the Cullinan Diamonds. Carrington & Co no longer trades today, so really this is something special! Not to mention, the box itself is in great nick, with the gorgeous blue leather in wonderful condition and with no major scuffs or scratches. The interior does naturally show some signs of wear, but this is nothing to worry about and you can still add small pair of earrings of your choice.
