Beautiful circa early 1930's vintage dresser box, with a highly ornate gilt bronze colored metal (probably spelter) frame sitting on small three feet, a three section glass liner and beautiful decorative metal framed lid with celluloid inserts featuring a portrait of a lady in 17th century costume. The box was manufactured in the United State by Progress Novelty Casting Works, and is fully signed (PNCW, made in USA) to the base of the frame.

The box is in very good condition, both the glass insert and all the metal ormolu sections are in excellent, the celluloid top has a couple of very fine scratches, these are virtually invisible unless the box is held up to the light. The portrait section of the celluloid has a fine ring of brown age staining to the very outer edge, this does not intrude onto the main part of the portrait, and just looks old.

The box measures 8" diameter from handle end to handle end, by 2 1/2" tall, it would be gorgeous displayed on top of a vanity or dresser, both the frame and portrait are very fine, and the size makes it really functional for all your smaller trinkets.
