Fabulous and quite heavy jewelry or treasure casket box, of fine heavy brass, lined in red velvet. On the top are wonderful high relief figures of winged beasts, horned mythological heads, leaves and vines; and in the center shield it is engraved "Mabel from George 12-10-61". Although the box looks antiques, we believe this date to be 1961, with the box being a little older, possibly 1920's - 1940's. It is marked on the bottom Made in Spain. We do have the original key to the lock as well. On the box front a winged head, and more figures on the sides and back, just magnificent metalwork. The box measures 9" by 5" and is 4 7/8" tall. This box is in very nice condition, shiny and rich, with a few minor wear areas on the exterior.
