Vanity case, 1872.

Emma Schuyler may have received this vanity case as a present for her wedding in 1872. Her niece, Jane Schoonmaker, donated it to El Paso’s International Museum 80 years later, with the understanding that “if she [the niece] is ever in reduced circumstances and needs to raise money that – the exhibit – is to be sold and money given to her.”
