ART DECO Bronze Metal & Rhinestone Jewelry Box - Treasure Box!
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1930 or so
ITEM: Found at a local estate sale here in St. Louis, I just have to offer this wonderful treasure box even though there is a small faux pas to the piece. Made of metal with a bronze color finish, the box features a lid with a bit of filigree, some red and green rhinestones (none missing) as well as a 3-masted ship as well as a single fish. The lid opens easily to reveal an interior that has a great inside but the underside of the lid shows patina as well as some sort of residue. It might be able to be cleaned but I will leave that to the new owner. The box sits on 4 filigree feet.
CONDITION: The outside is very nice - the inside of the lid, well I mentioned that above. One of the filigree feet is slightly bent inward but it doesn't affect the way the piece stands; last but not least, there is a factory faux pas which shows itself as a small piece of metal attached to the right side wall. There is some verdigris on the bottom feet as well as near the hinge - again, a good cleaning would take care of this (vinegar works wonder on the verdigris).
METAL CONTENT: Copper with a gilt finish? or bronze finish?
HALLMARKS: None that I can spot.
SIZE: 4-3/4" x 3-5/16" x 1-3/4" high.
FINAL COMMENTS: Just adorable and priced to find a new home quickly!
