Striking and lovely antique miniature snuff or patch box measuring about 2-1/3" in size. Featuring a hinged lid, top is finished with a beautiful micro mosaic scene of a gondola in Venice, Italy - backdrop appears to be the St. Mark's Basilica. Dating to the early 19thc, and probably brought back from a Grand Tour, gilded metal box is accented with raised fleur-de-lis and fine stippling. Mosaic is made with the tiniest glass tesserae pieces and very detailed - an incredible amount of work and craftsmanship. Condition is lovely with no dents, discoloration or damage - age related darkening to the metal - hinge and closure work as they should - I do not see any pieces missing on the top. Just a lovely antique box - decoration is over-the-top - a wonderful addition to any collection or display!
