Vintage metal box with a wood liner advertising the historic Loew's Kings Theatre of New York. The little trinket box measures 3 3/8" x 2 3/4". It has a live performance scene on the outer lid. The sides and outer base are also embossed with a design. The hinged lid opens to reveal a wood lining. The wood has black writing which reads Compliments of Loew's Bootery 271 Broadway near Havemeyer Street Brooklyn N.Y. The bottom of the box is embossed Made in Japan. I wish I knew the history of this little treasure, was it given out at the grand opening of this theater in 1929 or perhaps given out at the opening of a certain show? If anyone has any info it would be greatly appreciated. This wonderful performance venue which closed in the 1970's was reopened in 2015. This little box once had an all over silver finish which has almost totally worn off (traces can be seen on the base). There should be a slat of wood lining the base and all 4 sides inside of the box, There are only 3 sides with a slat of wood, the front side slat is missing.
