This old bakelite box would have been for a pair of cuffs links or a pair of earrings rather than a ring as is typically seen. The plastic box has tapered, stepped shape and it is raised on eight short feet. The color is a subtle pink with the slightest hint of lavender and it is accented with a little bit of gold. The top of the lid has an embossed gold painted panel. There are two facet diamond images and it reads; Bonded Diamonds Since 1910. Inside is a bluish lavender fabric insert with two slits to accommodate the earrings or cuff links. The fabric insert in the hinged lid reads; Rosenfield’s Est. 1910 Oklahoma City. The inside edge of the lid and the area around the display area is embossed with a floral design. The bottom is marked Pat. Apl’d For – Warner J.C. Co. Buffalo, N.Y. Made in U.S.A. and there is a patent number that would date this to 1936.
The base of the box measures about 3 1/8” wide by almost 1 ½” deep and 1 ½” high when closed. It is in nice condition with minor wear and soiling. There is minor discoloration to the plastic and wear of the gold pain. It has a tight hinge.
