Kerry, As you can see I have 4 varieties of this jewelry box and have seen others for sale recently. These were possibly made by airmen to sell or give to family members as sweetheart items. WW2 era.
I have a wooden horseshoe jewellery box but know very little about it, any information, such as age and where it would have been bought from would be appreciated. thankyou

Hello I am wondering if you are adding to your collection of cuff links. I have some eagle and crown gold ones I came across today at a thrift store. Your museum has been great to learn from.
