Handsome gilt metal ormolu caged glass and guilloche enamel footed dresser or powder box. Beautiful covered box features a glass insert surrounded by gilt metal cage and gilt metal lid with guilloche and hand painted pink roses. The gilt metal is particularly nice on this piece, bright gold ormolu and not darkened or tarnished, reminiscent of the Apollo pieces which were so popular in the same era. This piece is unmarked, circa 1920-1930. The glass insert has a large starburst in the base, and it stands 2 1/4" tall on four little ball feet. This powder box is 5" in diameter, making a nice statement on your dresser. There are no breaks or damage to the gilt metal, the guilloche plaque and lid are in very good condition, with one minor discoloration on the lid, commensurate with it's age. This is a large, heavy box that can actually be useful, whether you decide to display it or use it to hold talcum powder or face powder. There is ample room for a powder puff as well.
