Vintage shell box, engagement ring box or wedding ring case, leopard spot trinket box, rosary holder, snuff box with pressure clasp
Great little casing made up by two shell halves, mounted and hinged in brass with a pressure clasp. The mountings are sturdy and the box closes well. The hinge is a tiny little bit stiff which does mean that the box will stay open by itself. Both shell halves are in great condition and semi-translucent.
This little box would be great for a special occasion (like a engagement or wedding ring box?), to hold something special (a rosary?) or for everyday use such a storing little trinkets, bobbin pins or hair bands.
The exact age and origins of this item are unknown.
Size: 5 x 4 x 2.6 cm (not including the closure clips)
