The pot metal brush box is decorated front and back with raised fans which are individually decorated with birds perched on branches, birds in flight and sprigs of flowers. I consider this brush box to be extremely decorative. There is a serpent that encircles the entire base of the piece,
The overall surface of the pot metal appears to be copper. The overall condition of the brush box is very good with one (1) small chip off a fan corner that exposes the pot metal. The other area that has exposed pot metal is around the base of the piece which is to be expected since it has been used.
I purchased this piece from a very good friend who is a retired antique dealer. This piece was one of her personal items which she used to hold her pens and pencils.
It is 3 ¼” long X 2 1/8” wide X 2” high. The shape of the brush box is oval, circa is 1860’s.
