Art Deco Bakelite RAF Trinket Box

A classic example of a 1930’s Art Deco trinket box with a design to the lid that shouts Odeon cinema! The box is made from brown fleck Bakelite and carries an applied RAF kings Crown brevet to the lid which could possibly have been fashioned from a sweetheart badge. The lid hinges up and reveals a decent size storage area inside and no doubt would have been used on a ladies desk or dressing table. Bakelite was prone to chipping and this box is no exception with a very small chip to the rear top right corner of the lid but this really does not detract from a rather unusual and attractive piece that will appeal to both an RAF, Bakelite or 1930’s collector. Measures 4” x 4” x 3 1/2” high (10 cm x 10 cm x 8.5 cm)
