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 floral label (embossed) 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 nice. There are 2 tight split corners at one end that are impossible to see unless magnified. The bottom pink paper has a few small pinprick holes - I think these are the holes where the thread might have looped through to hold whatever was on the inside. The bottom of the box has a touch of foxing. Overall, there is a great patina of age to the piece!
SIZE: Long rectangle at 1-1/4" x 3-1/2" x 3/8" 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. Priced with all the minor faux pas present.
