 Antique Victorian Celluloid Box
Pale Yellow with White Flowers and Green Stem

This sale is for an antique celluloid box that measures 8 1/2"L x 3 1/2"Wx 4 1/4"H. The box is a pale yellow with a white flower and green stem. There is some minor peeling and the inside of the box, though gently cleaned for sale, could use a more thorough cleaning.

"By the late 1890s, sheet celluloid opened a whole new world of possibilities for decorative storage boxes that were made to hold cuffs and collars, manicure sets, dresser sets, jewelry, hand fans, keepsakes and more. The boxes were functional and beautiful, and decorated with scenery, pictures of animals or beautiful women. Some boxes were covered with embossed sheet celluloid that spelled out their intended purpose, such as “Hankies” or “Neckties,” while others simply showed an image describing its purpose, like a hand fan or a woman wearing a lovely ornamental hair comb. Decorated sheet celluloid also covered prayer books, photograph and autograph albums, and it was used to make political pinback buttons, advertising pocket mirrors, business cards, postcards, ink blotters and more." (Article appeared in Press Republican by Julie Robinson Robards)
