For your consideration is this sweet little jewelry box dating to around 1910. The box features a stunning open worked floral spray of clover in a classic Art Nouveau style on the lid and around the sides. In the language of flowers clovers symbolize the phrase "Think of me". It is silver elecroplated and signed with a maker's mark of "JB" on the bottom for Jennings Brothers and a model number of '"633". Its silken lining is original and in surprisingly good condition, albeit a little dusty, but I will leave the cleaning up to you. This little trinket box stands on 4 legs and is in Good, usable condition. There is a little den on the bottom, wear to the plating, and a crack on the lid on the left side on the hinge (in the back). Please examine photos.

It measures 5 x 3 x 2.5 inches.


Elegant and very sweet. Would be a lovely addition to any dressing table or vanity.




















A few notes on antique and vintage items and my experience with them:

I have been raised around antiques. My uncle was an auctioneer and dealer since long before I was born and, having no children of his own, took me on to pass down his personal legacy. He has been teaching me about the subtleties and details in which one can tell the genuine article from the fake and reproduced since I was a small child. For the last 14 years I have been working hand in hand with him in our antique businesses.

Making vintage inspired jewelry has also given me a leg up in the world of antique jewelry as lately I have seen the field flooded with antique reproductions made with the SAME EXACT components I make my handmade jewelry with. Its unfortunate, but true. The more frightening aspect of this is that when I occasionally and respectfully point out to these dealers that they are selling a reproduction piece they tend to get extremely hostile. Because of this, I have been holding my tongue more and more, but still feel awful about the bum deal someone is going to get.

While I have extensive knowledge of antiques and collectibles, there is no way the human brain, even with the aid of every price guide in print, could know everything about everything. I describe my antiques to the best of my ability and reference multiple sources before making educated statements about a piece. I stand behind what I sell and if you find out that a piece is not as described I will happily offer you a refund.
