Found at market in France, this charming box is fashioned to look just like a classic French sailor's cap. Originally filled with chocolates and sold as a souvenir from the French port town of Le Tréport, the lid of the box is covered in navy blue felt and adorned with a thin cream colored ribbon and topped with a fuzzy red pom-pom.

Located on Normandy's rugged "Alabaster Coast" in the north of France, Le Tréport is not only a fishing port, but also a seaside resort town that has long attracted visitors with its chalky alabaster cliffs. Mirroring the white cliffs of Dover directly across the English Channel, the untamed beauty of the area made it a popular destination for all the great French impressionist painters.

A handsome souvenir, this sailor cap box is sure to conjure visions of the wind-swept French coastline and the vast expanse of blue water stretching out as far as the eye can see.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. Circa 1940. In good vintage condition with slight signs of wear commensurate with its age. 4 5/8" x 1 1/8".
