Antique Art Nouveau Silver Plate Repousse Jewelry Box Casket Long Hair Lady Romantic
A beautiful antique Art Nouveau silver plate jewelry box, trinket box or casket perfect for your dresser or vanity. This c1900s box features a long flowing hair lady at the center of the lid and has a generous amount of other repousse work around the sides including florals, cartouches and more ladies. The box stands on 4 small feet and once was hinged but now the lid is simply set on the top. There are no dings or dents to any of the silver plated white metal.
The box measures 5" square and stands 3 7/8" tall. The silver plate finish has a heavy patina which gives this an appropriate aged look. There is room for engraving an initial or two on the side cartouches should you choose to get this done at some point in time. The box is lined with a pink silky fabric and there is a cord around the upper edge which is loose but can easily be retacked. The pink silky fabric shows wear but for 120 years or so it is really in nice condition with some light spotting seen from normal wear.
This would be a great vanity or dresser box to put your rings or every day jewelry in at night or while you shower. Would also make a fantastic presentation box for a special piece of jewelry or an anniversary or engagement piece. Very romantic!
