Old World Candy Box for your Valentine and your Valentine Doll_'CADBURY'S COCOA' w/Key
What could be better than finding such a treasure to give that special lady in your life for Valentine's Day? I actually purchased this wonderful 'antique candy box' many years ago as a doll accessory and it has served me well for many many years!
The outside of the candy box has its' original gold velvet covering, although some part a more faded than other parts though the years.
There is a scene on the top of box and one scene on each front of the opening into the box itself. All scenes are of European landscapes.
Once you open the front double doors, there is a mirror on each inside panel of the doors. Then there are seven candy drawers. How fun it must have been, back in the day, to have such a wonderful choice of candy to choose from... oh, yummy...
As you will see from the photos that is can be used for just about whatever your doll needs might be showing so many pull out drawers, 7 to be exact. All drawers have old ring pulls on them that match. Each drawer still has ruminates of the lacy white paper used to hold the chocolates at one time.
The ORIGINAL KEY also comes with the box since you might be using this box now for the reasons I have used it for and that was to store dolly stuff treasures inside the drawers.
The bottom of the box still has the original candy stickers intact and looking very vivid and gives it Providence. 'CADBURY'S COCOA' Absolutely Pure "For strength, purity, and nourishment, there is nothing superior be found." ~The Medical Magazine
Candy box MEASUREMENTS: 9 1/2" tall; 11" across; 6" deep. Condition is very sturdy.
Please check out the photos as that tell a lot about the condition through the years. It is a lovely solid and strong candy box in good condition for its' age. I believe this candy box is from the mid to the1800's. NOTE: the top of the box is the most faded through the years as you can see in photos. Gold metal decorative corners have few missing through the years, they blend in with the old gold velvet covering not very noticeable but want to be sure to mention it. There are four metal feet that are screwed unto bottom and I'm not sure if they are original to the piece. They were on the box when I purchased it.
