HISTORY of the TRINKET BOX
A trinket box is also known by other terms such as jewel case or casket and has been used from the medieval times on the dressers. These are small boxes that are embellished on the top in a variety of designs and have a hollow space or concealment when opened. These small boxes are perfect to keep jewels and other trinkets. The adornments on the top of the trinket boxes vary according to the designers and clients whims and fancies. From gold to iron, all metals have been used to create trinket boxes. Other materials that have been used to make these jewel cases are wood, paper mache, stone, ivory and porcelain.
Since the 17th century onwards, there has been a spurt in the production of trinket boxes since the Limoges Box was introduced in France. As it was manufactured by the King’s own kilns, it became a rage with the nobility.
The spread of porcelain ware, art of enamelling and Art metal ware gave a further impetus to the popularity of trinket box manufacturing. Most popular trinket boxes have been classified as Art Metal wares and were created in cast metal and antimonial lead and later electroplated in silver, gold, copper and even ivory. In the late 19th century, trinket boxes were a necessity on the vanity cases and dressers of women all over the world. From handcrafted ivory boxes inlaid with jewels of the east to the delicate porcelain boxes of France, there was a rich variety available.
