    I have found this is a jewelry box in my attic and I have found very little on this piece. I was wondering if anyone can tell me about the markings on the back. I see a M on left side reverse on the girls dress and then across from that on other side of her skirt or dress there is a S A with all kinds of circles looking Mark's on back. When I type on line. It say fred grey, I'm not sure on this piece.. . Very lovely if I say so myself.. just was wondering of someone could steer me in the right direction.. please and thank u..

      Sorry, this is the first I have been able to even post anything. It wouldnt let me load pictures for months now. And now they won't come in the right way.. sorry about that..

      Also, it says I believe JAPAN beside the M in the circle around the inside bottom of the circle going around with it. If that makes sence. Very hard to see.. clueless on this piece

      Hi I can't see the markings you are talking about in the photos. I agree it is definitely circa 1940 and it is totally adorable. I would suggest you consult the Brunialti books as they really cover this time period. Title: American Costume Jewelry Art & Industry 1935-1950.

      Thank you so much Painter... I have been wondering what was the best place to read around..
