Vintage French Bullion Boxes

Filed under: instant obsession. Discovered during weekend wandering at Lassco Ropewalk (Maltby Market), these vintage Banque de Paris gold bullion boxes caught my eye. The pressed-cardboard boxes are utilitarian-sturdy, but are visually upgraded thanks to the rivet details. I’ve already designated one for Paris souvenir storage — bien sûr — and though I bought a set of boxes in red and black, I think I’m headed back to pick up one in navy, too.
