This is a stunning decorated wood box. It is from the Art Nouveau period. The box measures 12" long by 3" high. by 4 1/2" wide. It open in front with hinges. The box is enrobed by embossed decorated gold gilt metal applied by tiny nails. The decoration is of branches ,clusters flowers and leaves. The flowers are set with aquamarine colored pieces of glass. Nearly all of the box is covered in the decoration on the top, sides, back and front. It is a beautiful piece of fine workmanship. I have had it and loved for twenty years or more. I bought from a lady in the Paris market. It will make a beautiful gift.
