Poppy Jewelry Box
Glam Alert! This luxurious gleaming three-sided ormolu jewelry box features floral latticework with a sculpted poppy on each side, and beveled glass windows. Heavy, with a strong hinge and incredible detail. Even the hinge is topped with a lace pattern, and delicate leaves line the interior edge that frames the cushion. We replaced an original interior with fresh cotton and clean deep black velvet (a recycled vintage blazer). The original fabric remains on the underside.
Vintage ormolu and glass with fabric interior. Marked inside hinge (unidentified numbers). Approximate measurements: width ranges from 2-4" interior, stands 3.5" tall. No cracks or chips in glass; two tabs missing on top with a tiny smudge of glue remaining where one tab may have been re-glued in the past.
In Kate Greenaway's illustrated Language of Flowers (a little encyclopedia of botanical symbolism), the Scarlet Poppy is said to represent fantastic extravagance. Quite right in this case, don't you think?!
