Seller: maureenfs (13,818) 100%, Location: Sugar Grove, Illinois, Ships to: US, Item: 401605093832 Beautiful Fancy Antique Art Nouveau Cast Metal Jewelry Casket Jewelry Box Click images to enlarge Description OK – I went to the MOTHER of all auctions recently – had to drive a ways to get to it, but it was so worth it. This was a rural estate auction and the former owners had been antique dealers. I bought a truck load – vintage to early antique, primitive to pretty and all UNIQUE. You don’t want to miss the next couple of weeks! Also, be sure to scroll all the way down to the bottom of all of my listings as I usually have MORE photos down there, too! AND…I might as well say it from the get-go. ALL of my items this week are DIRTY, DUSTY, COBWEBBY AND DEBRISY, all barn lived for a long time, and ALL will need a good cleaning. I do not clean or mess with as found patina in any way. Also please note that I’ve made some changes to my payment and combined shipment policies, which you can see highlighted in my detail below. I have one word for this one, and it's prettyprettypretty! What I have is an antique cast metal jewelry box that is oh-so-art-nouveau. I have sold others of this style, but I have to say, this is the largest one that I have had. It measures 6" wide by 3 1/4" deep front to back and 5" tall to the top of the handle on the lid. It is heavy, weighing 1 3/4 lbs - you'll be surprised how heavy it feels in your hand. This one has a gorgeous patina and it's made from a cast metal that a magnet does not stick to, and then has what I THINK is a brass plating on it - you can see peeks of green oxidation in small spots, but I don't think that the base metal is brass. That being said, I don't see peeks of grey or black or silver in wear spots - what I see looks more like a dark copper in color, and that's on the underside and the underside of the feet. I wonder if the base metal is copper??? I think it may be, but that wouldn't be consistent with others like this that I have sold, but it sure looks like it. Even where you can see the marking on the bottom by the maker - that mark is etched through the gold finish and the color that it presents is a copper color. I'm truly not 100% on this one, so please see my photos and what you think. That mark on the bottom is hand made, and it reads, 955(or 9SS - I can't tell which) followed by TII. The box is in excellent solid and sturdy condition structrually - totally strong with working hinges and no structural issues that I can see. Inside is the original pink sliky (or is it silk?) fabric. The former owner used this to store straight pins, I can tell, as there's a number of them stuck on the inside of the lid in the fabric and a couple on the inside of the box fabric. I am leaving them in the box as found. The fabric has no holes or wear spots that I can see. It appears two be attached to paperboard which is then affixes into the box - is my guess. It's lifting up on the edges all around and I could pull the fabric in the bottom of the box out completely if I wanted to - the paperboard does not appear to be attached any longer. On the inside of the lid on the left you can see a 1/2" spot of the edge of the fabric sticking out and its fringes. That's the only place that I see that. The fabric shows soil spots in grey and light brown but I don't see anything that I'd think of as a stain. It's not musty or smelly or anything like that. The box is truly lovely, with no dings, cracks or other issues. The patina varies as I said above, from a muted bright gold to darker gold to shades of brown and green oxidation - all part of its story - I wouldn't change a thing! Customer Satisfaction is extremely important to me. If you receive an item and are not satisfied in any way, please contact me before leaving feedback. If you are using a phone or tablet to look at listings, you may not be seeing full descriptions – please make sure you are – I list sizes, condition and many photos on all of my items – so if you are not seeing that, you’re not seeing all I have about the listing. Please ask if you have any questions, or feel free to inform me if you have any information about one of my listings. As with any of my items, if you ever need extra photos, let me know. My white stool, my rug and anything else that you see other than the item discussed are not included in the auction! PAYMENT IS DUE IMMEDIATELY(SAME DAY) AFTER THE CLOSE OF AN AUCTION. I’m happy to combine shipments for you, when possible - depending upon size and weight, it might not always be possible, though. If you win an item and plan to bid on another, please email me to let me know that you are looking at other items, hold to pay for the first item and request a combined shipping invoice once you’ve won the other item/s. If you pay for an item, I have to ship it, I cannot hold for items that close another day, if you pay for the first item. Unless you ask me for an invoice earlier, I will invoice on Sunday for multiple items purchased the week prior, or after 5 days have passed since the item that you won has closed. 5 (FIVE) days from the closing of the FIRST bought item will be the longest I can wait time wise to combine, and I ask for immediate payment after invoice for combined orders. I NOW HAVE EBAY'S UNPAID ITEM ASSISTANT SET TO AUTOMATICALLY FILE A CLAIM FOR PAYMENT 8 DAYS AFTER THE CLOSE OF AN AUCTION, WHEN NO PAYMENT HAS BEEN MADE - PLEASE KNOW. Please know that some items cannot be combined, though, do to size, weight, or safety of the items. Many items that are set to ship in USPS FLAT RATE boxes; I cannot combine due to size restrictions. Please look at the shipping alternatives in the listings. I only mail USPS and pack in the best manner that we feel safe – I cannot change shipment methods after the close of an auction (i.e. rolling an old map to save money when I have it set to ship flat), especially if I feel the requested method is not safe. Again, I only ship USPS and charge actual cost to ship only. I ship within one business day of receipt of your payment, unless there’s a holiday that closes the post office, or I will notify you otherwise. As I shop for treasures on the weekends, I most often do not ship on Saturday. Most items closing and paid for on Friday will be shipped on Monday. Many of my items come from local rural estate sales and auctions. They are coming right from the barn or attic to you - dust, dirt, cobwebs and all! I do not clean and polish before I sell – they are in the condition found, as you see in my photos, and I leave the patina exactly as it was when I bought the item. I do my best to photo and describe all thoroughly. Please email me before bidding if you do not use PayPal, as Paypal is the only requested method of payment on this listing. With postage rates increasing regularly, I am shipping more and more items Parcel Select. Parcel Select travels by land or rail and the packages do not leave the regional post office until they fill up a bin going in the same direction (so the estimated delivery is truly only an estimate – not exact). The post office estimates 5-7 days, but it can go up higher, sometimes even 3-4 weeks in peak mailing times like the holidays. I always provide a tracking number, so you can see where your item is on any day. Sales tax will be added for Illinois buyers. …and thanks so much for looking, I appreciate having you as a customer!
