Solid Brass Cricket Box Lidded Made in India Vintage 1970-80s Hold Trinkets Jewelry by Gatco

These are called "cricket boxes" as they often housed real crickets for various means: their song, fighting crickets, etc. They have been used in China for centuries.

This is a newer reproduction, though probably from the 1970-80s. It has a purple velvet liner on the inside bottom and has four tiny legs on the bottom. Would make a nice jewelry or trinket box...or a box to lock those torrid love letters in!

Bottom has a "Made in India" sticker with another sticker that says "Gatco Solid Brass."

Box is 5-1/4" wide, 2-7/8" tall (not including the handle), and is 3-1/2" deep (front to back).

It is in excellent condition. Has not been polished.

Your satisfaction guaranteed or money back!

Frequently asked questions about AtticDustAntiques

Yes, I am happy to check for you! Most of the time, costs have been correctly stated, but there is always the possibility of an error. If you will contact me with your zip code, I will double check to make sure you are seeing the correct shipping cost.
I ship only through USPS. Items that are under 1 pound are generally sent first class mail and anything over 1 pound is sent priority mail. I've found that standard or parcel post shipping generally costs nearly as much (and sometimes more) than the priority service. Priority mail comes with insurance.
You order is generally shipped the next business day after you place it. USPS priority should reach you within 2-4 days after I mail it. First class packages take about 5-7 days to arrive.
