Footnotes

  • The 'Mrs Bradley Martin' engraved inside this box seems to refer to Cornelia Martin (1843-1920), who together with her husband Bradley Martin threw the notoriously profligate Bradley-Martin ball in 1897. Their daughter married the 4th Earl of Craven, whose crest and coronet, it seems, the 'Bradley-Martins' adopted for themselves.
