A beautiful antique English bakelite heart shaped ring presentation box circa 1920s. Bakelite was a type of hard synthetic plastic that was popular during the 1920s and 1930s. The box is ivory in colour and unique in style, crafted into a heart shape giving an elegant and romantic appearance. It features a metal push button opening mechanism which snaps closed to keep the box secure with both catch and hinge in good working order. The inside of the box features a plush black velvet ring holder and the lid is lined with cream silk with black typography which reads "Sigwart & Son Jewellers, 12 Stratford Road, Wolverton". Emil Sigwart was originally from Germany started working as an apprentice jeweller and watchmaker in the UK in 1882. He set up his own business, Sigwart & Son in 1896. The business remained at the Stratford Road address for two generations before closing down in 1972. The box is in very good antique condition with minimal light wear as per the photographs and stamped "Made in England" to the bottom. A beautiful and unique box which embodies the opulence and glamour of the Art Deco era, great for storing a treasured ring. It would also make a lovely engagement ring proposal box, wedding ring box or photographic prop.

Care Instructions

Chemicals and chlorine can damage jewellery. It is recommended that you remove it when using body care products, spraying perfume or hairspray, bathing, swimming and whilst doing housework.

Settings and stones can be damaged by accidentally striking the hand against a hard surface. It is best to remove rings when carrying out any manual work or gardening.

To clean your jewellery use tepid water and a few drops of mild soap, a soft jewellery brush or cloth.

Extra care should be taken with opal, turquoise and pearl as these are porous so soaking should be avoided.  To clean wipe with a damp soft cloth and avoid extreme changes in temperature.

When you are not wearing your jewellery it is best stored away in a suitable jewellery box for safekeeping.
