This giraffe trinket box was one of a collection of about 80 boxes that I purchased at an estate sale. There were all types of animals, old cars, plants, aircraft etc. I will be listing them all as time allows so be sure to check my other items.
The giraffe is made of pewter and enameled in gold coloring with white legs. It’s nose and ossicones are black in color. All along its outer body there are clusters of what I will call rhinestones.
Regarding the “rhinestones”: when I obtained the giraffe, there was no original box or certificate of authenticity that detailed the materials used to make it. As mentioned above, I purchased a large collection of trinket boxes and all but about 5 of them did have COAs stating that the stones are “Swarovski crystals”. I believe the stones on this giraffe are Swarovski crystals, but since I can not verify that, I choose to call them rhinestones.
The giraffe stands about 5.5 inches tall. It is enameled both inside and outside. Inside is a small compartment for storage. Embedded magnets keep the box securely closed. It is hinged. The bottom portion, or the ‘bowl’, is just the right size for earrings, or a ring, or any small piece of jewelry or collectibles.
Condition: Due to it being from an estate sale, the age is unknown to me. There are no chips, or breakage. There also is no original box.

About Combined Shipping:
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased, but my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of over payment. If you are uncomfortable with that, send me a message with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Due to claims that merchandise is not being received at various international countries (although Customs tracking verifies the delivery), I will no longer be able to process international orders unless payment is made with U.S. currency, including conversion fees. Orders will be processed after funds have cleared a U.S. bank. PAYPAL WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED FOR INTERNATIONAL PURCHASES. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
