Vintage Gilt Brass & Enamel Rosary Container - Rosary Holder
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1910 or so
ITEM: A wonderful gilt brass container with a champleve enamel lid that might have held a rosary at one time. The front design appears Middle Eastern in design but I believe the box is probably from Italy - a souvenir from the European Grand Tour perhaps.
CONDITION: A small shallow dent which is very hard to see to the right side front. Gilt overlay has mellowed beautifully - there's a higher color on the inside than out. Lid lifts easily and closes with the requisite SNAP!
METAL CONTENT: Gilt Brass
HALLMARKS: None that I can find.
SIZE: Stands 3/4" high; width is 1-5/8"
FINAL COMMENTS: Really nice and ready to be used once more!
