This charming little jewelry or dresser box measures 5" long, 4 1/2" wide and 2 3/4" tall. The ornately carved and painted lid acts as a frame for the lovely print and is attached with two flat hinges and opens with a blue satin ribbon.
The floral details on the lid are touched with paint; green, red and blue, and highlighted in gold. The entire box was given a light coat of gilding including the inside and the paper that covers the print. The interior is covered with black jewelers cloth and the bottom has remnants of an old type of wool felt or batting.
In nice condition with a piece missing from the top lid shown in the last photo. The print is in excellent condition with no water marks, tears, etc. Minor dings and general aging on this nice old piece that we would date to around the turn of the 20th Century.
