Golden Tapestry Jewelry Box

My Golden Beauty!

My Golden Tapestry Jewelry Box from Marshall Fields.  

Back in the late 1970s my college roommate and her hubby stopped to visit with us while we lived in the Chicago suburbs.  Leaving the guys at home we went shopping at Woodfield Mall and while in Marshall Fields we saw two jewelry boxes... one in a blue tapestry fabric and another in gold.  Of course they were expensive so we just ooh'd and aah'd and went home all excited telling our hubbies all about the beautiful jewelry boxes.  

Well, bless his heart, at Christmas my sweetheart surprised me with the golden tapestry jewelry box.  It sits on our dresser and has a few little worn spots but otherwise is still beautiful after all these years.
