A delightful antique trinket box, late 19th century. Hand blown glass coated with cream enamel on inside while outside embellished with impasto enamel painyed bird next to the nest with baby birds. The satin glass birds painted on adds a sense of fullness and dimension. This is a fine example and a charming whimsy treasure from the Victorian era, beautifully displays wonderful craftsmanship of the old time.
The box mounted into ormolu mounts with hinged lid and 'S' shaped clasp; hinge and clasp work well. Really lovely piece and overall in good condition for its age, showing slight if any wear to enamel, has no chips, cracks or repair.
The box stands 2 1/2" (6.3 cm) high, 4 1/2" (11.4 cm) diameter at the bottom.
