The case with card printed Marlborough House S.W.1. and handwritten note For Angela from Mary R, 1952.
Mary R was Queen Mary (1867-1953), wife of H.M. George V (1865-1936).
Lacloche was especially known for their exquisite snuff boxes, vanity cases, lipstick holders and powder compacts as well as brooches and bracelets often strongly influenced by the Japanese Style using jade, mother-of-pearl, enamel, lacquer, coral and enamel. This brooch is a fine example of their intricate floral designs.
