A very attractive chocolate or possibly stationery box, likely dating from the Edwardian era to the Art Deco 1920s period.

This nice older box is not absolutely perfect, there are a few fairly minor issues that I will describe in more detail below, however it has such charm, all be-ribboned and tasseled, that I felt possibly someone would be able to appreciate and use it.

The multiple colors in the paper covering the box were difficult to photograph and may appear overall somewhat more green than teal in the images, but all are fairly accurately represented.

The ribbon bow, which I believe is a silk / rayon combination, is more on the medium greenish side, while the silk /cotton tassel is a very pale light green, with a blue and gold hand painted wooden bead.  The box interior is a creamy off white and black glossy paper covers the back/bottom.

As mentioned the box is not perfect.  There are a number of small wrinkles, rubs and bumps to the multicolored paper, with tiny losses at the very corner tips, otherwise the paper remains intact and present.  Also, about three inches of the paper on the lid has separated slightly, right at the front right edge where the multicolor paper meets the gold trim.  The paper is not loose, it remains firmly attached, but if you look very closely at the edge you can see a straight paper tear/separation.  Most significantly, the paper covering the lid has separately slightly at each inner corner, where the lid is attached/hinged via paper to the box. This is not readily apparent on the exterior, although it is slightly detectable if you look closely at where lid and box meet on the interior; more evident on the left side, than the right.  This does not seem to substantially adversely affect the box integrity.  It opens and closes well.  Possibly sometime in the future a small strip of paper or fiber tape, similar to book binding tape, could be added to reinforce the area where box and lid hinge together.  Easily accomplished if desired and if color coordinated tape is used it would not even be easily noted.

The ribbon is slightly wrinkled and could stand to be pressed and the hand painted bead shows some minor paint loss near the center hole, otherwise the box presents quite nicely.

Very useable today for a multitude of purposes, including for confectionery, stationery, ephemera, handkerchiefs, gloves, vanity, sewing, office, keepsakes, etc.
