Books curiosities


Recently purchased the new Shabby Chic Interiors hardcover by Rachel Ashwell and fell in love with her vintage pale pink capodimonte jewelry box. I was on the search for something similar and found one just like it, but in pale blue. Unfortunately the seller forgot to end the listing since she gave this pretty box to her niece for her birthday… The situation was lame; I had my heart set on it already! Oh well, what can one do :(? Does anyone know what is the proper name for the style of capodimonte in the pic below (besides it being a “capodimonte”)? Could probably help in my search and I would appreciate some insight. If anyone knows, please post a comment. Thanks.

  1. I am not sure that’s a jewelry box at all. It may have been created for a different purpose and then just used as a jewelry box. Sorry I am not more help, although maybe just realizing it could be something else might help you find it.

  2. Hi Auggie:

    Thanks so much for your reply. I was lucky enough to find a few by saving an eBay search and waiting patiently for someone to list. I believe the keywords I used were “pink capodimonte.” I’m using mine to store SoftLips chapsticks, safety pins, and other little bits.
