Vintage Quilled Lady’s Jewellery Box

Published by at 3:18 pm under Vintage Quilling

In March, 2009, my youngest daughter married a charming Scotsman.  Unfortunately, only his parents and a few friends were able to come to the United States for the wedding, so this year, Jen and John took a vacation to Scotland so she could meet the rest of his family and tour the wonderful sites of his homeland.

 
While there they visited Edinburgh Castle, which served as a prisoner of war camp during the Napoleonic Wars.  John, who is quite a history buff, believes that the Frenchman who created this intricate quill work was most likely a sailor in Napoleon’s navy.

    What a fabulous piece. I bet that’s one picture that you daughter couldn’t wait to show you when she got back.

    Wow, that’s quite an impressive piece and in such nice condition. It looks as if some of the pieces were crimped with a very, very fine crimper.

    This is a wonderful example of quilling. I love it. It’s actually quite difficult to replicate this quilled piece. I’m writing an article about replicating vintage quilled pieces and part of the article is creating patterns to show how these pieces were created. It’s a shame someone doesn’t make these recessed boxes.
