As seen in the Elegant Vessels: A century of southwest silver boxes book (Page 33 & 35)
This box exhibits a style common in the pre-World War II years. The techniques employed here – stamping, repoussé, and appliqué – mirror those used to create jewelry during the same era. These basic techniques would change little over time and would be used to great advantage, prevailing until the present day.
