These triangle shaped boxes made from ribbon and glass date to the 1920s-1930s and were made to hold folded handkerchiefs, but they make fantastic display cases for any kind of decorative smalls you might have. I have a large collection of antique glass boxes, and use mine to keep my wax hands, wax millinery flowers, and small taxidermy pieces. At 9” at its longest, there is ample room for whatever your heart desires. There’s also a handmade, removable satin pad lining the bottom. 

Condition is very good with some soiling to the ribbon associated with age. The box is otherwise great, without chips or cracks.
