Superb leather or suede box with gold thread and velvet inner lining, from mid-20th century.
The box is almost spotless and has only been superficially cleaned (see pictures to get a good idea of its condition).
Used by large patisseries (in this case, Prats-Fatjo from Barcelona) to carry the knife and shovel with which the bride and groom cut the cake. They are decorated on the top with the coats of arms of both families and given to the bride and groom at the end of the ceremony. Exquisite quality, they were not common gifts, but were reserved for celebrations of very wealthy families so they are very hard to find.
It is 32.5 cm long by 18 cm wide and 6 cm high. It weighs 660 g
