When selling the house, my sister trashed it along with everything else in the house except mom's bedroom furniture and brother's recliner. 

Although no feelings for the old BF, I did like his parents and appreciated the workmanship of the item.

I don't remember anyone in my family having that. 

I do remember Shadow Boxes but the were made out of wood and usually handmade.

I wonder if if was more popular in certain regions of the US...I am on the East Coast.

Yes, my parents had one and since my sister now lives in their home, she has it now.  Looks just like the picture.  I hated cleaning it...
