This stunning white opaline glass, egg shaped box is mounted on an ormolu stand and has decorative ormolu floral garlands and mounts.
The unusual top finial is formed as a flower and foliage.
The flowers appear to be Forget-me-nots which add to the romance of this pretty box.
Possibly brought back from a Grand Tour for a promised love.
This box dates to around 1850 and is in very good condition for its age, no chips, cracks or repairs with a strong clasp fastener.
A couple of very minor rubs on glass.
Please see the photographs for clarification.
