This is an appealing enamel and treen salt box, presumably of French production as it is labelled ‘Sel’. The body of the box is of white enamel with blue edging and the word “Sel’ in black. The lid is treen. On the underside of the lid is a mark ‘c e’ with ‘1595’. The top of the box has a perforation to attach a hanger. The condition is consistent with age and use with some loss of the enamel on the edge of the base and small areas of loss on the front. This is a charming and useful item to add to a shabby chic décor. Height 9.75 ins (24.9cm). Weight 648 grams.
This item appears in my book, “Antique Boxes, Inside and Out” on page 101. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $44.00 USD - with no tracking is cheaper. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us.
