May I offer…
AGE: C.1930 Celluloid Box, C.1890 Victorian Die Cut
ITEM: An Art Deco era celluloid/early plastic box in the shape of a heart. Someone, at some time, decided to make the "plain" item into something a little more fancy and added a Victorian die cut to the Top. A pair of yellow birds nests among a floral bouquet - the envelope visible displays a sentiment that reads "FORGET NOT YOUR FRIEND." The inside of the box is lined in a pale blue velvet. While the ribbon rose appears to be original to the piece, the light blue cording is, I think, a later addition.
CONDITION: Very nice with no problems I can spot.
HALLMARKS: FRENCH (hallmark) IVORY on the bottom SIZE: Depth is 7/8". Box is 3-1/4" x 3-1/4".
FINAL COMMENTS: Adorable and, I think, VERY hard to find in a heart shape! Perfect as a Valentines Day gift, Birthday gift or whatever gift!
