Brighton Museum - Miniature Toy Tool box made by Charles Dodgson

I don’t know if you already know about this (it is referred to in the Morton Cohen biography), but it’s not on the forum.

In Brighton Museum & Art Gallery there is a toy tool box made by Charles Ddogson in 1846 for his sister Elizabeth:

Its size seems to indicate it was made for a dolls hose or similar item. The two pence coin is 25mm in diameter, so the photos are larger than life size.


The same museum also houses the painting “Alice in Wonderland” (1879) by George Dunlop Leslie. It shows a young girl leaning against her mother, who reads a book.
