Green Speckled Art Deco Jewel Trinket Box Bakelite Era
Great looking 1940's vintage green plastic box is predominantly speckled with various shades of green, but there are also a few dots of red, orange, yellow, blue, white and black scattered among the greens. Raised Art Deco line designs both inside and out: a sconce-like upside-down Eiffel tower shape with rectangles on top of the lid; inside the lid are concentric circles in center and corners with double line border. Marked on the underside with conjoined AB-7. Metal pin hinges. Top inside ridge is thinner than the rest of the box. It acts as a stop for the lid. The 2 back corners of this ridge have broken off. This is on the inside back and not noticeable when the box is closed. It does not test positive for bakelite. I pin tested it in an unobtrusive spot. It has a very sharp acrid odor that I'm not familiar with but it can be identified by a more scientific type than me from the smell. It is not a more contemporary plastic such as acrylic or lucite (I'm familiar with those smells). 1-7/8" high x 6-7/16" x 3-3/16". It's in very good condition with exceptions noted. This has been in my own collection for about 25 years. I originally purchased it from an estate sale.
