All Items : Antiques : Decorative Art : Metals : Pewter : Pre 1920 item #1256258
This jewelry casket is a very charming souvenir of Reims,France as you can see. It is very heavy (11 oz.)and I'm pretty sure it is pewter. There is intricate detail in the weave and roping of the basket. As well as the floral bouquet on the lid! The inside has the original blue lining, now somewhat faded with age. Two little wire rings hang as handles on each side, one has a twisted detail and the other must be a replacement. It measures 4" X 3" and 3" tall. Circa 1900...

This wonderful burl wood secret box is most unusual than others I've seen. There is a wooden insert ,seen in 3rd photo that slides out for the key to be hidden. Sorry, there is no key with it, but small keys may often be found.the This type of secret box, in the shape of books,seemed to have originated in Italy in the 1800's. The burl wood is just beautiful! I hope you can tell the solid burl, as in the lid and the applied pieces...

The embroidery and buttonholed scallops with rare little knots around were most certainly hand made by a quite accomplished artist! The satin stitching is so perfect and stands so tall. This piece was almost certainly done by a young woman for her trousseau, as the basket was often a symbol of prosperity in the marriage. Perfect for a young bride today, perhaps as a centerpiece for the vase of flowers (hopefully not carnations) her new husband just presented...

This precious piece has cherubs and chariots hand etched then painted on a domed stained satin wood box. Absolutely fabulous! I have just given it a light cleaning and leave the polishing to you if you prefer. The inside has a removable wooden piece for you to divide it in half if you prefer. It measures approx. 6 1/4" X 4 3/4" and 2 3/4" deep. In wonderful condition for it's age, with the slightest crackling across the ebonized band...
All Items : Antiques : Decorative Art : Organics : Wood : Pre 1900 item #1223135 (stock #CL0057)
This incredible hand painted box, possibly from 19th c. or earlier, is hand crafted. The colors in places are vibrant and in worn areas muted, there seems to have been initials on the top which is very worn and has loss of painted design. The top is hinged with pegs, and it is joined by handmade nails, shaped like narrow triangles, you can see the tops in several photos, and in 4th photo. The crossed inserts, creating compartments are not original ,but not offensive...

All Items : Vintage Arts : Decorative Art : Textiles : Linens and Lace : Pre 1980 item #780683 (stock #N0036)
Elaborate pulled or drawn work and embroidery is machine embroidered, on this piece. I'm not sure of the original purpose, but I think it would be delightful over a tissue box on your vanity or in the powder room, as well as so prissy over a basket for scones at your next tea party. I'm sure you might come up with more ideas! Never used and sold as found, perfect condition...

The ideas are endless! Painted deep chocolate brown, in great condition, and most likely hand woven.Photo enlargements 3 and 4 are best f...

Beautifully carved wooden wallbox, perhaps for candles.It has a wonderful patina and looks like a warm rich leather!I found this in Switzerland and it might be attributed to Brienz, the real source of what is considered Black Forest carvings. It has 2 marks near the front center which almost look like burns, but doesn't detract from it at all. Quite an addition to any wall in your castle!!! You could even put a vase for flowers inside or hang it in your kitchen for whisks, wooden spoons and suc...
