Italian Florentine Wooden Domed Chest Footed Trunk Gold Gesso and Yellow
SALE I love these Florentine Gold Gesso Painted Boxes in all shapes, and this footed domed trunk is extra special with a bright yellow against the gold. Marked C. E. Made in Italy on the bottom, there are 4 little feet kind of like bun feet on some early furniture, and the ends have a design at the top that looks like a Crown. The domed lid has the heart like pattern with curliques, ruffled edges and dots, while the two longer sides have an even different design. There's just so much fun detail in all these boxes that are so different, so if you decide to do a grouping with all sizes, shapes and colors, you can make quite a statement. I remember these from the late 1960's and even into the 70's, and they were used for all kinds of knick knacks, or as jewelry boxes, cigarette boxes, and many more things. This one must have held some little flowers with the lid left open, because there is the foam like rectangle in the bottom like they use at the florist. I am sure this can be removed. I did remove just some sticky tack from the top inside, but you can see just a little left of the glob that will certainly come out. It is yellow on the inside, and a bright yellow on the outside against the gold gilt. This little cutie is 4 3/4" long x 2 5/8" front to back, and 3 3/4" tall. You won't be disappointed to add this to your collection of great Florentine Made in Italy!
