This vintage ring box is made of bakelite which has been painted gold. The domed lid has a heavily embossed design down the center with a more delicate, etched detail on either side. The base has an embossed, sculpted scroll design and under the front edge of the lid is another embossed design resembling flowers. Inside is a plush, turquoise colored fabric pillow with a slot in which to display an antique ring. The slot is wide enough to perhaps hold a wedding set. The advertising fabric insert in the hinged lid reads; Kaufman Jewelers Boise, Idaho. The bottom of the box is marked; Made in U.S.A.. This does appear to be original, gold colored paint and not an after market craft project.
It measures about 3 1/8" wide by 2 1/16" deep and 1 ½" high when closed and is in very good condition with minimal wear on the paint. The hinge works well. One side of the fabric slot appears to have been used more than the other side.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
