Impressive round crystal and dore pin cushion with box/vitrine featuring gilt painted scenes on all sides.
Lovely gilt painted work that includes shields with arrows and musical instruments surrounded by floral work. The top is covered in a deep green velvet which could be used as a pin cushion or for displaying favorite pins/brooches.
The crystal is unmarked, but certainly of fine quality with cut work on the bottom which plays with the light coming through.
French, Circa 1888
Measurements; 3 3/4" in diameter, 3 1/4" high
Condition; very good, very small loss of gilt painting; professionally cleaned
