New flocked jewellery cases and pouches

As a child I remember obsessively rifling through my mothers, grandmothers and sisters jewellery collections. On a dresser amongst crystal dishes, vintage perfume bottles, hand woven lace doilies, hand carved wooden curiosity boxes, and maybe a secret ballerina box to boot would be all of their treasures. There would be heirlooms, antiques, buttons, 16th birthday gifts, graduation gifts, mementos from lovers, brothers, teachers. I loved all the different boxes they came in- often the most precious jewels were kept in their original box. A gold pearl from Tahiti kept in a heart shaped blue flocked box. An ebony brooch still in the original cream coloured bakelite box, silk lines with gold foil print stating the year and maker. A Ulysses butterfly brooch, still blue and lustrous, kept in a intricately carved wooden box inlaid with saw pierced and engraved brass. The exquisiteness of the jewellery always began with the experience of opening the special jewellery boxes. 

I have found some jewellery boxes and pouches which leave me with that same feeling of wonder about what luxuries lay inside. A flocked box just sends me right down memory lane to the precious pieces of jewellery I adore- and still do as now I have a small collection of vintage flocked boxes that contain my own jewellery collection.
