These fancy carved celluloid (an early plastic) boxes date from about the 1930s -1940s. As cute as they are on the outside, half the fun is in the velvet interiors. Thanks to being stored shut, the velvet is free from fading, and remains colourfast after all this time!
The ivory celluloid boxes are most common, but they also come in a range of pretty colours... maybe even something to co-ordinate with your wedding?
Current shop favourite isn't a celluloid box at all, it's a little paper box made to look like a book! Inside is a pair of flocked velvet inserts to hold your wedding rings. An adorable & romantic alternative to a traditional ring bearer's pillow!
There's a range of celluloid, leather, and velvet boxes at the Wellington shop. Prices range from about $30-$70.
