This is such a neat very rare collectible from the 1933 Chicago World's Fair. This was a giveaway or souvenir item from the General Electric Co. I have also been advised by a nice customer that it may have housed a razor. It has the GE initial emblem on the bottom. It has a great Art Deco design with the curved accents on the lid and the very deco design on the box sides, and setting it off with the round chrome ball lid handle and feet. The lid is a pistachio color, which is very pretty and that great 1930's green. I believe that the lid sweeping curves may have been originally accented with black paint just on the edge of the curves, but that is worn away mostly. The black box is definitely bakelite, while I tested the top with Simichrome, it did not appear to be bakelite. The box measures 5" long, 3" wide and 2 1/2" tall, not including the lid ball. I believe it most likely was intended for cigarette storage, but would be great also for a small trinket or jewelry box. It is in very nice condition.
