This beautiful little box has such detail. Each petal has been painstakingly set on a black background, and then four borders surround the meadow scene. On the metal itself on the lid there is a lovely border of dots. One rarely sees such workmanship on what was most likely a grand tour piece. The box is spring loaded and closes itself. It is unmarked.
Size: 3 inches x 1 3/4 inches by 3/4 inch.
Condition: I can find no missing tessera. The metal box does show expected age and display wear.
This is a fabulous little box to keep a special piece of jewelry, or use it as a pillbox, or perhaps on your desk .
