Satin ribbon in box lid reads: Ourivesaria Allianca Porto the Portuguese translation is: Jewelry store Allianca Porto
This is a phenomenal example of vintage bakelite at it's best. There are 2 pieces, a letter opener and a wax sealer. Condition is excellent, appears to be unused. There is a bit of wear on the exterior of the box, expected with the age.
We have found that the most interesting non-jewelry bakelite items tend to be European in origin. This treasure does not disappoint. It appears to have been packed away for years, thus protecting the surface from too much patination. We found this in it's original casket-shaped presentation box, complete with satin lining. The teal and cream swirls are fascinating. The deco-inspired laminated stripe is icing on the cake.
Measures: OPENER approx. 10" long and 5/8" at thick end. SEALER: 4.75" long.
Age: circa 1930s
