Antique Trinket box / child tintype / 1890 victorian button / estate box / keepsake chest / miniature chinese chest / black ring casket


Inside this box was an antique tintype of a little girl, a piece of antique lace and a button dated 1890. Someone obviously handed down these heirlooms to someone who tucked them safely away inside this wooden chest. There is a little roll in the material if you wanted to put a ring inside.  Imagine putting and antique ring in this footed wooden miniature chinese chest ? or giving her this treasure to hold her treasures. A new mom would love to have this with the little girl's tintype inside from the 1800's.  I am sure this was probably a keepsake box  with its original content  so you probably are going to get a lot of great Karma that comes with it. The tintype and button and lace are well over 100 years old.  It measures 2 3/4" long, 2" tall and 1 3/4" wide.  A total darling little box that someone cherished and loved so much. I hope it gets a good home.
