This is an Ornate French Enameled Powder Brass Box w/ Mirror. It is marked on the bottom "Made in France". This box is made just like the ornate brass boxes with paintings on Ivory on the Lid. It has a small lip that sticks out on the lid to open it easier. The lid on this box has an Enameled round Medallion in Green with dainty little Violets and a Miniature Rose that shades from a Pink to Red with pale green leaves. It is very scrolling and fancy on the top with Ornate Brass designing and has (5) Round Green Stones / Beads and (7) Round Pearls around the top. It is missing one of the green stones / beads and has been replaced with a pearl, but is really not that noticeable and could certainly be replaced with a Round Green Stone / bead. It has a fancy rope border on the side of the box with Acanthus leaves in the middle. It has a Beveled Mirror with a brass twisted rope around it , the Mirror does have some dark spots on it from moisture throughout the years. The bottom inside has a little tiny bit of residue around the bottom edges. It is really in above average fine condition with no problems other than the replaced bead. The box measures 2" across and 5/8" tall. This would look quite beautiful on a dresser with other dresser items.
