This beautifully crafted French box is silver over bronze. It has been well-handled; the silver is worn on the top showing the bronze underneath, but the Art Nouveau design of a courting couple is still clear and lovely. The box opens to reveal two compartments intended for postage stamps. This box is titled "Doux Propos" and signed "d'apres F. Simm." there are the numbers 2672 on the bottom. The box measures 2 1/2" X 1 1/2" X 1/2" deep and weighs 2.1 oz. It is in excellent original condition except for the wear on the top. It is around 100-125 years old.
