Antique celluloid handkerchief lined box. This will make a wonderful trinket box, presentation box or trousseau box. This lovely old box has sides covered in paper printed with beautiful pansies and features a cameo of a sweet young girl on top, which is covered in celluloid. 5.75 inches tall, 5 inches wide and 5.75 inches deep. The colors are still vivid and it has a wonderful working clasp. The box is lined in dark grey silk which shows staining. The bottom has some wear, but overall this gorgeous gem of a box is in very good condition. Use for presentation for a tiny doll, store her clothing, jewelry or any other display that will be complemented by Victorian imagery or scrap (and what, pray tell, is not?) I am not sure of the date, but I am guessing early 1900's. There is a photo of this box on page 159 of the book "Celluloid Treasures of the Victorian Era", published in 1999, and was valued at 175-200.00
