Camphor glory box

“It was good practice for unmarried women to collect items such as clothing and household linen, in anticipation of married life.
The dowry was saved in a Glory Box, generally made out of Camphor laurel wood, as it was insect (silverfish) proof, so to make sure the items were in good state by the time the box was open”
