This small heavy antique rectangular casket dresser box features a fancy bas relief exterior in a less commonly found domed top shape, with a four footed bottom.  It is quite heavy for it’s size and we believe it to be brass.  The interior retains what appears to be the original plush red velvet type liner, finished with a period cord accent trim.  This type of velvet lining and trim is commonly found in examples dating from the later Victorian era ,through the turn of the century Edwardian period.

Small vanity boxes such as this were used to protect and store small valuables and jewelry, like rings, necklaces, brooches, cameos, bracelets, hair accessories, small coins, stamps, etc.  This particular casket also features a padded interior lid, for accommodating pins, stick pins and smaller hat pins.

The little unmarked chest is in very nice antique condition structurally, with some fairly minor scrapes, scratches and small discolored areas to exterior finish. (see right front edge of lid in first image for most significant scratches) The brass color was difficult to photograph accurately, therefore the gold/brass hue exterior varies in the images due to lighting and camera angle, etc. The truest color representation, on our monitor at least, is depicted in images #3 and #7.  Cosmetically we see the typical expected wear and loose threads to the red velvet lining, especially to the edges of interior near accent cord as can be seen in the images, plus a few areas of thinning to velvet at interior bottom, which is only somewhat visible in images. Velvet at lid remains quite nice and plush, with light padding of some kind behind to accommodate storage of stick pins, etc.  Interior color depicted best in image #4.  The hinge works well and lid opens and closes appropriately.

Small treasure boxes such as this example have been popular for hundreds of years and in fact remain quite collectible yet today, especially in this somewhat harder to find dome top truck style.  We understand that many of these boxes were reproduced over the years, however judging by the old, seemingly original, red velvet lining this example appears to be one of the older original examples.

The diminutive size works well for dresser and vanity, but additionally the trunk style of the box also functions well and makes a really charming fashion doll accessory and/or display for their accouterments, such as wardrobe items, shoes, fans, jewelry, etc.
