ANTIQUE VICTORIAN French Gift Box - Doll Sized Container!
ANTIQUE VICTORIAN French Gift Box - Doll Sized Container
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
ITEM: From France, here's a small trinket box, jewelry box or gift box that I believe was part of a larger collection of boxes that held doll sized accessories. The cardboard box features embossed gold foil sides with a chromolithograph of a Chinese Junk on the top. The inside of the container features pink paper, the bottom of the box shows the natural cardboard coloring.
CONDITION: For its age, very, very nice. The corner seams appear to have a touch of glue reinforcement; the bottom pink paper looks to have some "graying" almost like a pencil had been lightly rubbed on it. On the outside, the only sign of age is the patina to the top of the image and the gold foil.
SIZE: 1-13/16" x 1-1/4" x 7/16" deep.
FINAL COMMENTS: I don't normally handle doll sized items but I can tell right off that this is a very old box - perhaps just past the Georgian era rather than at the end of the Victorian era.
