For sale here is a HUGE and rare vintage 1940s 50s handmade copper enamel wood and lucite jewelry box by American artist/enamelist Edward Winter (1908-1976). Winter was born in Pasadena, California, studied art in Vienna Austria, and lived and worked for most of his life in Cleveland, Ohio with his wife and fellow artist, Thelma Frazier Winter with whom he collaborated on many occasions. His work is in the collections of many American museums, and is held in both private and corporate collections as well. He is considered to be in the first tier of American enamel artists of the 20th century. This box is the largest enameled box that I have seen by Winter in my 40+ year career, and the only example of this particular design. It's probably a one of a kind item made for a special client on order from the artist. The box measures 10-1/2" by 7-1/2" by 3-1/2" tall. The enamel plaque measures 9" by 6". The remainder of the box is wood with a black faux leather covering, and with white lucite lining inside as shown. Marked in the enamel as shown, "Winter". No damage or loss to the enamel, no chips, or crazing, or damage of any kind. Excellent vintage condition with just fine light wear and some staining to the fabric on the bottom as shown - please view the photos, read the description, and ask all questions prior to purchase. I am open to reasonable offers from serious buyers.
