This vintage powder box features a clear glass insert nestled in an ormolu frame and topped by a lovely guilloche decorated lid. The piece measures 4 1/2 inches in diameter and stands 2 inches tall. The ormolu frame features scrolling vines, ribbons, and flowers. The ormolu is in very good condition, with very little gold loss. The cover is a charming addition, with the lovely guilloche enamel under a thin protective cover and framed with ormolu rings. The center is further enhanced with a hand painted floral spray. The lid is in very good condition. The only fault is a small area missing the gilt on the center ring surrounding the flowers. Overall it is a lovely piece to be cherish, a size quite useful for today’s trinkets.
