This nice box has an elaborately embossed brass panel around the sides has a gilded appearance and a nicely textured background. The open window top is made of thick clear glass with a wide beveled edge. The hinge is tight and the box opens and closes correctly. The box has its original rose colored silk/satin tufted fabric with each tuft having a pink bead in the center.
The brass base is marked "MADE IN FRANCE".
Dimensions: 2 1/2" high and 5 1/4" in diameter. Weighs 1 pound.
Condition: Box is in excellent Estate condition with no noted damage or repairs. Although the hinge is good and the front closes nicely, there is a slight overlap with the top overlapping the base just a bit. This is barely noticeable and is not considered a problem. Also there is one small tear in the tufted fabric interior near the side edge. Overall, this great box is in lovely condition and ready for use or display.
