This is a beautiful box, and fairly large. It has a gorgeous French enamel over copper on the top.
It has a lovely wood interior made with quality, with a separator but I'm not sure if it was for jewelry or perhaps playing cards, but it is quite classy. The enamel is a glass enamel with copper backing and hand painted birds and pink roses.
The Sevres enamel on the box is large extending 4 1/4" in length. The box itself is 6 3/4" wide by 4" deep and 2 1/2" tall. The enamel is splendid and in excellent condition. It raises above the box in an egg shape form.
The box itself is a blue leather and also in excellent condition. The box opens well and the top is attached to the bottom. The hand painted birds are colorful and detailed. Very cool and beautiful box with a wonderful and large enamel top. The box is not marked anywhere, but is certainly French because of the enamel work in the style of Sevres. It is stunning! The enamel alone is worth the price.
