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 scene at the seaside - a group of figures can be seen in the foreground with the ocean in the background. 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. No split corner seams; 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.
