Spelter Art Nouveau Jewel Casket with Egyptian Revival Motif
It's made from skillfully cast spelter (an alloy composed mainly of zinc) and features an array of astounding Egyptian Revival-inspired designs.
A rich patina has coated the gold-colored exterior over the years.
The darkening is spotty and slightly uneven, but this gives a truly lovely vintage look.
The interior of the box is lined with luxurious blush-pink silk; the lining has become slightly detached from the rim though this is an easy fix for a skilled restorer.
Finally, the underside of the casket features a criss-cross pattern with the number "103" at the center.
Despite the disclosed wear issues, this magnificent little jewelry box continues to serve as an exquisite representation of Art Nouveau style.
Measurements: 2 7/8" tall, 3 ¼" wide (side to side), 2" deep (front to back) Weight: ¾ lbs.
