Vintage Mid-Century Alabaster Trinket Box Hand Carved in Italy

$75.00

Vintage mid-century alabaster cigarette box, originally part of a four-piece smoking set which consisted of the box, lighter and two ashtrays.  This listing is for the box–perfect for jewelry or to make into a candle.  We have the two ashtrays which are damaged and are being included free of charge; one has a nick on one corner and an internal fissure, and the other one has a repair.  Both are perfectly usable as match keepers or ring or soap dishes (the flaws are visible mostly when held up to the light–see last image).  The stone is a beautiful creamy color with slight color variations and some veining on the box’s lid.  All the pieces were hand carved in Italy (they originally had a foil label) with a very mid-century design–an almost brutalist jagged pattern around the perimeter of all the pieces.  One of the ashtrays and the box are marked on the underside with a carved alpha-numeric code: 107L04IX164.  The box has heavy brass fittings with a lovely beaded design and is in very good used vintage condition.  Great shelf-styling piece.

    Wonderful experience, meticulous packaging!

    I purchased two items from this shop. They arrived surprisingly quickly, and it was evident that extreme care was taken to ensure they arrived safely. I greatly appreciate the attention and extra care when packaging up the items. How sad it would be to purchase an antique that has survived multiple generations, only to be destroyed by USPS! Thank you so much for a wonderful shopping experience!
