Boxes

People used to furnish their homes with the only essential items they required for surviving. Boxes, trunks, and chests being one of the most important items among them have survived the test of time. During the Greek and Roman period, wooden chests or boxes were used by people to store their personal belongings whereas decorated chests or boxes served as decorative item. Designed pieces were often owned by wealthy and royal people.

Eventually, the vintage and antique boxes started to evolve into various styles. The boxes contain a wide array of items such as snuff boxes, patch boxes, jade boxes, pill boxes, presentation boxes, and other rare box items. These decorative works of art presented at online auctions are usually made of gold, silver, diamonds, tortoiseshell, or woods and set with precious stones, enamels, or miniatures. The boxes vary in respect to their styles, such as Victorian, Baroque, Art Nouveau, Renaissance, Art deco, Mannerism, Louis XVI, and more.

Some classic vintage and antique boxes are also available on sale at Bidsquare auctions. You can style the vintage boxes in your bedroom to store your jewels or important belongings. Bidsquare offers some of the exquisite boxes made by renowned furniture artists such as Wendell Castle, Louis Auguste Moreau, Karl Griesbaum, and more.
