Upcycled 1950s Ornately Carved Red Box

Upcycled and modernized box, great for jewelry, keepsakes, makeup, nail polish, or anything else you might need a small box for.

This 1950s box is adorned with artistic scroll design carvings on both the top and the front. (Fluer de lis, lily pad, repeating pattern. Has a natural as well as geometric feel) Each side has a small decorative handle, as well as the front of the lid. Small feet lift the box and adds a bit of elegance to the design. It opens smoothly, and has hardware on the left hand side that allows it to open just the right amount.

After sanding, the box was given a new coat of red enamel and black glaze to bring out the ornately carved details. Finally, it was sealed with a matte protective finish for added durability. I left the inside unpainted.

Measures: 10.5" x 6" x 3.5"

Good upcycled condition. The mirror is original to the box, and it's age is evident. Though tarnished around the edges (charming!), the middle of the mirror is in good shape, and perfectly usable. The box has small dents and cracks consistent with it's age, which adds to the aged aesthetic.

*Please know that all items have been upcycled from vintage or used condition. Flaws are naturally going to occur, and I do my best to describe and show in pictures the condition of the item. Please contact me with any questions!
