Holy smokes! I definitely would not pay that much for it! I have seen similar ones on ebay with really nice mosaic tile designs on the lid and even those are usually priced for buyout at 2-300.I was at a vintage and antique store yesterday and saw a jewelry box JUST like this. The shop was asking $400!!! Your box is lovely and such a deal
That's good to know! I told my DH that the box in the shop seems to be priced higher than others online. He's super sweet and will remember things I've liked and go back and buy them for bday/Xmas gifts - but I didn't want him paying that much!!!Holy smokes! I definitely would not pay that much for it!

Nice pieces! I'm pretty sure this ivory and jade pin is Krementz.For the things I brought home:
No hallmarks, but the edge design had tiny milgrain detail all throughout and the post had been replaced. Set me back only $7.
Vintage puppy plates! The one with the beagles actually didnt come with the wooden frame. We went to another estate sale that we just happened upon and luck would have it. They had exactly one wooden plate frame that matched!
You are totally right about the pin, spot on! I knew it wasnt something super valuable but I thought it was pretty, so why not!Nice pieces! I'm pretty sure this ivory and jade pin is Krementz.
Google "Krementz Ivory Jade pin" and you will see more!
The blue and white plates in your photos are Bing and Grondahl. I see collections of them often.
I went to a few estate sales today, but they seemed devoid of any good stuff. I think the estate sale people remove the good pieces before opening up to the public.
I would say Art Nouveau, based on the vines and leaves.
