    I wasn't sure if I should post this here or in the jewelry forum so I opted for here.

    My wife found this jewelry box on one of our Galveston trips. It's 9 3/4"L x 7 3/4" W x 2 1/2" H. There is a Godey print under the glass on the top. I thought the print was the same as the photo to the right of the box however the dress on the woman on the right is different in both prints.

    These jewelry boxes were very popular in the 40s. There were all kinds of prints used for decorations, I doubt that it is an original print. You are lucky the mirror is in such good shape. Enjoy a "blast from the past". I have several under a piece of furniture most likely a bit dusty.:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Thanks, I doubt too that it's original. For one thing it looks like the bottom where it usually has the name of the print is cut off and also it almost appears to be a pencil drawing but you can see a slight bit of color in the women's hair decorations. I have a couple more framed Godey's prints that I doubt are original either but I'll post in I guess the art forum.

    Figtree3 What would you do if you weren't afraid?

    The difference in the skirts in the woman on the right is strange... I wonder how the designer of the box came to the decision to do that?

    I am fond of that type of fashion plate print. Could see myself using a jewelry box like that.
