I'm calling this a jewelry box, although it may be something else because the interior, except for the lid (burgundy taffeta), has no lining. (If someone out there has any ideas, let me know.) The outer metal may be brass. The lid is hinged and opens to reveal a pop-up tray. If your jewels were wrapped in velvet, for example, this would have been a great travel jewelry box--think 1930s train travel. The box shows signs of age: some wear to the metal on the bottom side and a tiny dent on the top side, but it has a great vintage patina. It appears to have been lacquered with some of it having worn away. (Please use zoom for close-ups.)

It is a nice substantial piece and would look lovely on your dresser. Measures about 4" x 3 7/8" x 2 1/2".

Will ship via USPS First Class Mail with delivery confirmation. See Shop Policies for details:
