About this treasure
Even though the petit embroidery is discoloured, it is never difficult to imagine how gorgeous this box must have been in her prime of life. The brass box has a very decorative floral and scroll openwork which allows light to pass through. It has a glass bowl inside for your house keys or jewelries.


⌀ 11.5cm / 4.5"  

height:  6.6cm / 2 5/8" 

Not known 

Glass bowl has the mark HA at the bottom, which represents Hazel-Atlas Glass Company

Very good vintage condition. The lid still closes very tightly and the glass bowl does not have any chips or cracks. Even though the brass body shows signs of wear and the petit point embroidery shows discolouration, nothing detracts the beauty of this vintage box. The mirror inside the lid shows very very minor flea bites but still looks new.

One point worth mentioning is the previous owner is likely to be a heavy smoker. The inside of the box still has a faint smoke odor lingering. Please do not purchase if it bothers you. 

Vintage items are supposed to show characters and traits. Think of the long journey through time and places they have travelled, and you will find it easier to let them appear as they are.

Wipe with a soft dry cloth and never soak this item in water. Do not use abrasive cleaning solution to clean the box unless you have expert knowledge in cleaning vintage and antique wares. You may use soapy water to clean the glass bowl inside.
