I took a 1950s wooden doll case or trunk which was in great vintage condition and turned it into a fabulous, artsy, one of a kind jewel, makeup case or precious objects box. I used photos and pictures from various books as well as other objects to assemble this finished box. The overall theme is 1950s kisch.
There are pictures of magazine covers featuring aliens, camping themes, spaceman, dinousaur, flowers, UFOs, pinup women and sketches. I also used cutout words to assemble phrases which worked with the overall theme.Inside, I added a vintage jewelry box which I took apart and then decoupaged for a nicely finished look. There are two small mirrors, one from the jewelry box and another gold, 1960s vintage find from a thrift store. The background on the inside is the original paper lining.
I added photos and book pages to create a one of a kind vintage inspired pop art piece which is also useful. One of the photos shows jewelry hanging on the hooks I added as well as bracelets, rings and earrings in the various spaces for them. The jewelry is not included in the sale.
This piece is handmade by me over a vintage box. It is not factory produced and is not perfect. It was created with love and, like me, has minor imperfections.
It is so amazing and beautiful and I know you or someone you love will treasure it! The size of the box is about 14" high x 7" wide. There is the original vintage, plastic handle on top for carrying. The metal hardware on the box is in good shape and still mostly shiny with some slight rust here and there.The metal clasp on the front of the box is in good shape. The edges of the box are a dusty pink color and is in good vintage conditions with some spots here and there that are discolored with age. I lined all of the box edges inside with a beautiful red and white gingham ribbon. The round container on the left inside of the box was once a metal can that I decoupaged and added little wooden feet to. There is a small sign holder also on the left inside.
