A pretty Victorian papier mache stamp box, C1860, with unusual hand painted decoration of flowers and gold painted leaves.
The painting of the flowers has a slightly raised feel to it where one layer of paint has been applied to another.
L 3. 1/2"
W 2. 1/2"
Condition: Excellent, some slight rubbing to the gold leaves and paint highlights and slight darkening of the leaves, all commensurate with age.
A difficult object to photograph due to the decorative techniques used with a fine quality period piece.
Please see all photographs and as ever I am happy to send more and answer any questions you may have.
