Antique Edwardian French Paper Baptism Gift Box with Family Christening Image on Top

Dating to the late 1890rs or the early 1900s, may I offer this sweet paper box from France. Meant to hold a souvenir of a Christening or Baptism, the box would have been filled with candies - French bon bons or dragees (in this day and age, Jordan almonds). The box is covered in cream paper (very lightweight) and features a black & white image of a family celebrating the special day - the father and mother carrying the newly baptized walk from the church to the site of the morning breakfast of celebration.

Condition: Basically, the piece is for display purposes only. There are multiple breaks in the paper as well as traces of a silverfish feast! Definite patina of age to the paper that indicates this piece is antique!

Size: Depth is shy of 1". Box itself measures 3-1/4" wide x 6-1/2" long.

Final Comments: Very few of the these boxes survived through the years - they were fragile and easily prone to destruction. Here's a chance to treasure a true antique French box from the past! Priced according to condition!
