  • Details
    This charming old small dresser/jewelry box came to me as part of an estate. It is a unique and interesting object for sure from the point of view of any lover of old things, and especially for lovers of things that involved the hand work of a creative person from an earlier cultural environment.

    The wood crafting is the first interesting aspect of this piece. It isn't just plain, but it involved the use of some kind of routing tool to incise a stylistic line on the lid, and 2 lines on the box itself. Other interesting features are the choice of sophisticated black for the background color, and then the nine subtle pastel flowers that are raised from the surface by thick applications of the paint. The actual paint for the red flower seems to have fallen off, however the bottom layer of paint is enough in tact to keep the loss from being noticed.

    The name Nellie Blanche Evans and the date 1910 are written in old fashioned penmanship on the bottom of the box. I find it warmly intriguing to guess if Nellie made the box or if someone made it for her -- perhaps a beau?

    The round box is 2 1/2"wide x 1 1/2"h Charming vintage condition with a few nicks and bruises that can be seen in the photos. The lid fits beautifully.
