    My wife found this jewelry box on one of our Galveston trips. It's 9 3/4"L x 7 3/4" W x 2 1/2" H. There is a Godey print under the glass on the top. I thought the print was the same as the photo to the right of the box however the dress on the woman on the right is different in both prints.

      Very nice piece and my guess it was easier to use already printed ladies and just change the dress for print . These were used to show women of the world the fashion trend in France which was followed by women to keep up on the newest looks . Prints were sent to USA and other places but also looked so nice they were framed later on .

      Thanks, yes I have to more of the Godey's prints that are framed that I'm going to post on another area.

      At one time I had a whole wall full of them but over time I sold them off and kept a few . I will look forward to seeing more of your prints :-)

      Geez, I need to proofread my posts, should have been 'two'. I'll put the link here when I do. I need to take better photos first.

      I am lax on reading my posts before I post too and make error's but I knew what you meant :-) and I hope people know what I mean when I miss a letter or 2 .

      Manikin - I only have one Godey print after all my years of collecting!
    8. Manikin Manikin, 4 years ago
      valentino97 you need at least one more so you have a pair :-)
    9. capot1948 capot1948, 4 years ago
      True, two are definitely better than on

      Mary, we'll have to work on you getting more Godey stuff! :^)

      capot, what a nice find your wife made, both a nice print, and a beautiful jewelry box! :^)

      Thanks Bill, we're heading out today to a town we haven't been to in about 3yrs though it's only 35mi away. It's got about 5 antique stores in it, one especially where we've gotten good buys.
    13. valentino97 valentino97, 4 years ago
      Thank you Bill - I know it wouldn't be hard, so many prints are out there. I need to take a picture of mine which is actually a doublespread featuring 5 fashionable ladies and a little boy tugging at one lady's skirt....

      capot1948 - hope you have a great trip and share your finds with us :-)

      Well it wasn't very much of a fruitful trip. I picked up a small silver plated tray for $5.00 and my wife got a small jewelry box that says inside the lid 'Made of Incolay Stone, Handcrafted in the USA'. She paid $19.50 for that. I'll have to post photos of it and once I clean up the tray post on the silver plate area.
