Antique French Hand Painted Lacquer Tortoiseshell Box c1760

This is one of a kind and I have never seen another domed example. Is painted on all sides and is guaranteed 18th century, French, and in the Vernis Martin style. The painting is allegorical and typical of the period. All sides with the top of a still life, the base(in amazing condition) features a beauty with assistant, putti and angels. The sides are ribbon/bow and floral sprays. It shows some wear mostly along the sides, but the quality and rarity of this piece easily overcome this. It is 3 1/8" diameter and 2" tall. A great early example.
