A small round bakelite box with the words SEDO CARENA on the lid and MADE IN FRANCE on the base. Approx 2" across. 6" round. 3/4" deep. Any idea what it was used for, an age and approx value? I have tried researching the name but keep getting just the modern equivalent. ThanksJannie

Hi,My name is XXXXX XXXXX it will be my pleasure to help you with this question.Your box held a makeup or skin care product. Sedo Carena is a drug manufacturing company. It was made in the 1930s or 1940s.If your jar is in perfect condition, its current retail (replacement or insurance) value is approximately $60. If you were to sell it, you could expect to get the fair market (private sale or auction) value of approximately 40% of the retail amount.I hope this answer has been helpful to you. Thanks for using Just Answer!
