Rich leafy green suede lines this botanically inspired gilt box with a soft cushion for your most important jewels. A garden of tiny flowers covers the sides, with stylized acanthus leaves at the feet and handle. Finished top and bottom with our most delicious emerald suede, the open base looks especially lovely perched on a mirror tray. A beautiful gift for jewelry lovers across the gender spectrum.
We restored this vintage box with a color that matched its original velvet cushion, using reclaimed suede from the NYC fashion industry.
Vintage gilt metal and glass, with new cotton lining and suede. Box unmarked, most likely American made, 1950-60's. Measures 6.25" wide, 3" tall. Excellent condition. Note: with the lovely open design at the bottom, this box must be moved by handling at the edges otherwise the cushion may come loose from the frame.
