Used for storing little keepsakes, pewter trinket boxes have been around for centuries. Originally, in the 17th century there was a spike in the manufacture of these dainty, small boxes after the Limoges Box began production in France. These elegant and intricate pieces where mainly associated with the rich and noble for storing their earrings or broaches. Later in the 19th century, they were the ‘must have’ in vanity cases for women all over the world. Trinket boxes have been made from all types of materials but I'm sure you'll agree the pewter trinket box is one to be desired.
