Offering this exceptional Ca. 1900 black lacquer papier mache glove or fan box, with red lacquer interior.

Cover is transfer decorated, though it looks like hand painting at a glance. Entire top features a red and several white roses, along a trailing leafy vine, with a tiny blue butterfly hovering to the right.

Amazingly, this box still has the original tufted silk cushion inside, though it is damaged and heavily stained. I have sealed it in plastic and will include it with the box, as the new owner may want to replace it and replicate it from the original.

It is difficult to find these early glove boxes in such wonderful condition. There is only some light crazing, minor rubs or bumps to the glossy surface, and just a few tiny losses to the black along the bottom. There are no chips, cracks or separation.

Measurements are 12 inches by 3 3/4 inches and 1 5/8 inches high.

Payment can be made via debit/credit card using the PayPal link on order page. If you prefer another method, please let me know and I will email you a Square invoice, where you can make payment with your debit or credit card on their secure website.
