Stalin Birthplace Shrine Sewing Box, Tbilisi-made, bone-colored plastic box, circa 1950.

Sturdy bakelite-like plastic, 5" x 7 3/8" x 3 ". Image is of the monumental covering that was built in 1935 to surround and protect the Dzhugashvili homestead, Stalin's birthplace, in Gori, Georgia. Inscription on lid identifies the scene as the home of "I. V. Stalin". With a Tbilisi factory trademark imprinted on the bottom, its date of manufacture would have certainly have been from somewhere in the immediate post-WW2 era to the period of "deStalinisation" in the mid 1950s.

Very good to excellent condition. Small chip to left rear corner of the lid. Not immediately noticeable
