This antique Palais Royal white opaline trinket box was made in France in the mid 19th century. It is a stunning piece with the pure white opaline glass surrounded by the intricate etched gilded ormolu fittings. The top of the white opaline features an intentional pitted texture and the interior is buttery smooth. The finial is a lily pad and is held in place by an interior golden flower. The ormolu shows some patina except for the bottom, which shines as though it were made yesterday. The hinge works perfectly, although the balance is effected if you try to open it without holding the lid. The piece sits on three legs and I believe someone may have turned it at some point. It would be more balanced if the two feet were in the back. Handle to handle, the piece measures 5 inches across and stands 3 inches tall. The glass box itself measures 3 1/3 inches in diameter. This is a stunning piece sure to be the highlight of your collection.
