I was wondering how much are antique nouveau jewelry caskets

Customer Question

JA: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

Thank you for the question! The value depends greatly on the size, style and quality. As a general rule, in good condition these Victorian/Art Nouveau style jewelry caskets sell at the $50 to $80 level with those with more macabre Victorian themes - like small caskets - selling for $75 to $125 at auction and in online marketplaces like Etsy. At antique shops, they can sell for more. (Here's a great general resource, see: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/fine-jewelry/jewelry-boxes)
