Beautiful Art Deco jewelry casket by Jennings Brothers Manufacturing Company (history below), ca. 1920s – 1930s. Made of heavy cast metal with an “old gold” finish, the jewelry box has the iconic mix of lines and curves typical of the period. A raised fan shape embellishes the front and back; a pinched semicircle serves as a finial from which indented straight lines fan out towards the short edges of the lid and continue downward on both sides of the box creating a scalloped edge at the bottom. The casket is octagonal, with the four corners having a concave shape. There are actually six feet on the box, on the four the corners and one each front and back, again featuring a mix of lines and curves. The interior is lined in dark burgundy velvet and is clean. The box is heavy and allows the lid and bottom to remain upright when open. The underside has a beautiful pattern featuring diamond shapes accented with flowers and fleur-de-lis. Marked “JB 1568.” See below for measurements and condition.
