Wow! The most unusual bevelled glass trinket box we have ever seen.
Designed in the form of an early motor car this beautifully made piece, comprises two hinged bevelled glass boxes. The first with a sloping top, makes the bonnet or hood of the vehicle. The second box is the cabin of the car and has a hinged top.
The rest of the car is made up of a filigree frame, a steering wheel, wheels with rubber tyres and mud guards.
An ingenious design, this is very possibly a one of a kind piece, commissioned for someone in particular. We have never seen another one in all years.
A fabulous gift for the car mad gent or lady in your life.
Condition is very good for the age with some crazing to the rubber tyres as you would expect in a piece of this vintage and there's a chip in the glass top right lid.
Please see the photographs for clarification.
