Vintage 1950s 1960s Jewelry Box By Farrington With Ballerinas
Perfect for any lady who loves ballet. This is a gorgeous jewelry box in a yellow gold color with gold round the edges of the bottom, and an embossed pattern in the top. There is a small upper drawer with two compartments that moves as the lid is opened, and a bottom deep drawer with one open space. All lined in rich teal/mint velvet. There is a teal satin lining under the lid featuring an illustration of three lovely ballerinas in white and black. Measures about 8" long and 5.5" wide. The box stands about 3" tall. Stamped on the bottom with "Farrington" and "Made in USA". There is a space for a key but unfortunately the key is long gone.
Excellent vintage condition. The latch is worn with age of course, and there are some small marks on the exterior and the velvet lining is not as fresh as it was when new, overall there are some marks and general signs of use. But that's about it. Its all very faint and this is in really quite nice shape. Just a side note from me personally...at some point a lady must have kept some perfume in here or something powdered as it has a very, very faint fragrance of something that immediately takes me to the 50s. You have to put your nose right into the box to smell it but its there. I just find that so charming!
Please note that many of my items are vintage and/or made using vintage materials. I do my best to list any major issues but some signs of life and love are to be expected and only add to their charm.
