This is a vintage Italian micro mosaic pillbox, snuff or jewelry box. Italians are the best known for this lovely style of art work, and this box is no exception! I am guessing that this box was made for the tourist trade.
It features an oval body with a hinged lid that is set with glass micro mosaic tiles in a floral design in vivid colors. This box is ALL original, complete with old celluloid or plastic lining.
CONDITION: Very nice pre-owned condition. Some of the blue border tiles are just a little uneven but are all still strongly intact. The lid opens and closes securely with no problem at all. Overall good condition.
SIZE: The box measures 1 3/4" long by 1 1/2" wide at the widest point and 3/4" deep.
