This is an American jewelry casket box in the form of a carriage with wheels. The American companies that made these items are Matson, Stylebuilt, Guildcrest, Globe, etc. The date is circa 1950.

The jewelry box is 6 ¼” long, 3 ¼” wide, and 3 7/8” high.

The metal of the carriage is filigree and covered in ormolu, or 24k gold plated; the history of the production of these companies is that they used 24k gold to plate the metal. The glass is beveled and held on with prongs. The hinge on the back is a 20th century hinge. The inside has a velvet pad that is gold or tan.

This is not an antique item, nor was it made in Europe. However the companies that made these boxes in various shapes produced high quality vanity items that are treasured today. I know of one man who proposed to his girlfriend, and he put the engagement ring in a box like this; of course she said yes.

The lid does not fit perfectly as you can see in the photos. There is nothing wrong with the hinge or fitting, it is just the way it is. The velvet pad has a little bit of fading.
