Description....:
SHIELD-SHAPED PATRIOTIC BOX, SILK & PAPER, 1898-1926: Shield-shaped, patriotic trinket box, made sometime between the Spanish-American War (1898) and the Sesquicentennial of American Independence (150th anniversary) in 1926. Made of paper board, covered in printed silk, and the top padded with cotton batting. These may have been sold as sewing boxes, candy containers, or "just for nice." Mounting: The box has been hand-stitched to 100% hemp fabric. The mount was placed in a deep, modern, black and gold frame. A shadow box was created to house the object and keep the silk away from the glazing, which is U.V. protective glass.
