This is a small Bohemian Czech art glass box, sometimes called a patch box, and used to hold pills or tiny things like a wedding ring. The glass is a rich purple amethyst. The date is the 19th century, circa 1890.

The box is 1 1/8” high and 2” wide.

The box has a 19th century hinge on the back and it snaps in front. The metal is brass.

The decoration is quite pretty. On the lid is a hand enameled pink and white flower on a stem with leaves. The flower is the thick enamel. There is white enamel beading on the lid and sides. There are some tiny missing beads as you can see in the photos, due to age and use.

The bottom has a round indentation and with some irregularities from the glass making process; there is one fold in the glass on the bottom.

The metal has age patina.

There are no chips, nicks or cracks.
