"Where They Ought To Be"

An antique English slipper box of stamped brass. Along the top, an ornate frame surrounding the wise words "Where they ought to be."



I love this part of the seller's description: "In very good vintage condition, polished where you would expect an English piece to be polished." (Do the English polish differently? Or does that mean in the servants' quarters? lol)
