Old, Heart Shaped Ring Box with Pretty Detail
This vintage ring box is made of a cream colored Bakelite or other plastic in the shape of a heart. It looks like a ribbon tied in a bow embossed across the top. There is also a tiny flower where the "ribbons" cross. The base is not flat, it sits up and three little feet that have a shell-like detail. Inside is a plush, red/maroon, velveteen pillow with a slot in which to display an antique ring. The fabric is a little more pink than what the pictures indicate. The edge around the pillow is also detail which also shows when the lid is closed. There is a fabric insert that is advertising F.E. Sandberg, Inc. Jewelers & Optometrists of Chicago in the hinged lid. The bottom of the box is marked; Made in U.S.A. - Pat. Pending with two numbers that would date this to the late 1930's.
It measures about 2 3/8" wide by 2 5/16" deep and almost 1 ½" high when closed. It is in very good condition with minimal wear. Looking at the side profile you can see that the back portion of the lid does not fit snuggly to the bottom of the box. This appears to be in the manufacturing and not damage or warpage.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
