Great Gran's pastels

I am lucky enough to have my great gran's pastel box - isn't it beautiful? Didn't they do things better back in the day? The colours are all perfect, as you would expect, but unfortunately I'm a bit scared to use them: I'm the kind of drawer who will scrub a pastel down to dust and then realise I don't really like what I did and throw it away, so I'll stick with my school quality sticks until I finally learn some finesse, until then I enjoy them with my eyes mostly.
Look at the lovely stamp . . .
And even the catches have a lovely elegance.
Thanks Great Gran.
