Jessica Blinger was a sucker for anything shiny or dangling so it wasn’t a surprise when she filled up in short order, the little jewelry box that sat on her dresser. There were just too many necklaces, earrings, bracelets and broaches that ‘called her name’ and there definitely was nothing wrong with her hearing. A full jewelry box meant only one thing to Jess--she needed to buy another one. While strolling down Park Avenue one afternoon, she passed by a small jewelry store, in the window was a beautiful wood jewelry box that caught her eye. It was a large case with lots of shelves, a drawer and a mirror inside the lid.

An hour later Jessica was admiring her new addition that joined the line of other boxes on her dresser. She transferred some of the jewelry that was overflowing from her old boxes into the new one but there was something about the new box that was gnawing at her. She couldn't put her finger on what disturbed her about it. Then the light bulb went off in her head (or more appropriately--the diamond sparkled in her head), she realized what was wrong. There was way too much unused space inside the new box...she needed to fill it with more jewelry.

Here’s a large wood jewelry box made in Japan probably in the late 1950s to mid '60s. It is 13" wide, 5" tall and 7" deep when closed. When open it is 10.75" tall. It has a drawer, two small shelves and a 3.75" X 6" mirror as well as lots of compartments for corralling your jewelry. The interior is all ling with a gold crushed velor.

This box is in very good vintage condition. The exterior has no cracks or splits, just a few light scratches and scuffs. The hinges work well and the lid stands upright when fully open. The interior mirror is in nice shape and the inside material very clean and is free of rips, tears, stains or foul odors.
