1912 Vintage metal jewelry box casket trinket box
A piece of history, 1900-1925 that is. I purchased a collection of case metal jewelry boxes recently and I am selling them individually. Some are untouched and the lining is the original lining that would now be over 100 years old. The jewel cases were cast of a base metal and then plated with copper, gold, silver or painted with an ivory enamel.
About this box:
Produced in 1912. Art Nouveau box, with yellow jasmine flower design, cream color fabric lining.

Things to call out: natural patina, looks like small crack by the flower
