A little something about this vintage treasure

It can be something good to think out of the box, how about a gilt ormolu box with a complimentary ring pillow in matching gold lace and burgundy satin ribbon?

We are sure that this new found old treasure will be the highlight of your ring-exchanging moment on your wedding day.

This beautifully crafted ormolu box features a stunning 3D rose emblem on the glass lid. The body of the box is a latticework with multiple bouquets surrounding it, just perfect for a wedding. It is rested on three decorative feet. The treasure looks elegant and almost giving a feeling of sanctuary when light shines through.

Condition

Excellent vintage condition. The rose ornament on the glass lid shows traces of dust marks but we did our best to clean as much as we can. Some age old dust is still trapped alongside of the scalloped edge of the lid but that does not steal the beauty of this treasure. The gold is still looking as lovely as it would have been many decades ago although it shows signs of wears here and there, not very visible that would distract the beauty of the box. The red velvet paper inside the box no longer looks brand new. The hinge still works perfectly but the closing of the lid leaves a little gap between the lid and the box.   The trinket box for sure has come a long way. It is well loved and shows signs of use.

Care of vintage items

We would definitely not recommend using any cleaning products unless you have professional knowledge in this area. Wiping the glass surface with a soft towel will just do fine. Do not place this trinket box in bathrooms as the humidity will corrupt more with the brass body.
