19th Century French Vesta Match Safe Silver and Enamel Victorian Couple Bathing, ca 1880. This amazing match safe features two different enamel scenes on each side, inside is blue enamel, and edges with landscape scene. The first enamel is a Victorian couple bathing with the woman descending from the bathing machine. The other side features a lovely lady with mask and mandoline. The top of the match safe is hinged snap and a Stricker to the bottom. Please see pictures for more details. Measuring 5 cm high by 3,5 wide. An absolute most for collectors!
The bathing machine allowed a modest Victorian woman to spend the day at the beach in complete privacy. After the horse would haul the cabana into the ocean, the 19th century woman would change from her layers of petticoats and dress into another layer of swimwear. Later a hood was added to the contraption to allow the female in a soaking wet flannel dress to emerge from the water unseen.
