When in the XVII century liquid perfumes super­seded the solid, the pomander gave place to the vinaigrette. Yet another aid to legitimate vanity was the patch box of the days of powdered hair. The XVIII century specimen shown above bears the motto Have communion with Jew be familiar with one deal juftly with all speaker' evil of none. These vanities were the forerunners of the modern flapjack Vanity Case —Eve’s essential travelling companion.
