Personal Collection Release. I know many of us antique jewelry addicts also have a passion for antique jewelry boxes. Here is a fine one from my personal collection that I purchased in France.

ABOUT:

Gorgeous heart shaped leather antique box from the Victorian era. Beautiful coloring and organic wear from authentic age, it's lovely and romantic. The lid has a gold embossed shield and crown on the cover with a gold outline accent. The inside is also leather, perhaps wrapped around some sort of board as it is sturdy and not flexible / collapsable.

I purchased this antique box in France. I put a little ring holder foam inside for my purposes, but it is easily removable. Please note that insert is nothing professional or fancy so I am not selling it to highlight that, or claiming that as perfectly done, as the value is in the empty box. So I am selling it as is. I will send it along with the insert I had used for the buyer to decide if they want it or not. There are also shops on Etsy who make high quality custom inserts for antique jewelry boxes which is another option for the buyer, but again it currently just has an inexpensive foam ring slot tucked inside.

These antique boxes are collectible in their own right which is why I purchased it and enjoyed using it. It is always fun to store our antique treasures in antique housing. Just thought it was time to pass it on. The lid removes completely (it is not hinged).

Important NOTE: Please note the measurements!! It is not a super deep box. I have small fingers so it holds my rings but is likely not deep enough to hold larger sized rings with tall / high ring faces.
Jewelry in the display is not included (but is available : )

SIZE & MEASUREMENTS:

(length x width x height): 5.5cm north south and east west. It is 3.1cm deep on the outside, so with the thickness of the lid and base, the vacant space inside is less than that. The ring in the pics is a size 7 and is 23mm tall, it fits nicely with a few mm to spare, but again please note the measurements that it may not be appropriate for large rings.

IMPORTANT CONDITION NOTES:

All my pieces are pre-owned and in estate condition. We are talking about 140 year old leather and board box so there are signs of age and wear. Some of the leather is wearing back around the rim. There are variations of hues, some scuffs and scratches, some spots and stains. Which in my mind make it more charming! Still usable and beautiful! But my disclaimer with all my estate pieces - due to age, please note this piece is not in mint condition.

Thanks so much for looking at my items!
