For Show & Tell Friday I thought I would show one of
my newest collections, my Art Nouveau Jewelry Caskets or Boxes.
I have 4 of them in my collection so far.
I love these little pieces of history, from another time, my old soul likes
that period and much of it's ornamentation.
I adopted a rule from another collector and so it makes the search fun for these, as I don't pay more than $25 a piece for them, which is really a good deal on one.
The smallest one I have so far which has most of it's silk lining inside and is about the size of a ring box. I only paid $15 for this one.
And my latest addition to the collection, found at Bayview Antiques in Everett, WA. I just had to have it when I found it, it was on sale!
I have them setting on the old French 2 drawer chest I inherited and now use
as my jewelry chest. When the collection grows I will have to think of a new way to display them.
