Antique Mid Victorian Period Banded Agate Petite Ormolu Trinket Pill Box.
Wonderful example of beautiful banded agate in rich warm spicy shades of golden brown, burnt orange, cinnamon and white. The gleaming natural stone is polished to display the unique banding pattern and beveled on the edges.....set into an intricate filigree ormolu hinged covered box mounting. The box may have been originally intended for use as a snuff box.....however very versatile as a pill box or the keeping of a treasured jewel.
Box is unsigned.
Box measures 1-3/16 inches square by 5/8 inch high.
Minuscule flake on the agate at the bottom corner (have to scrutinize to see). Antique condition is otherwise excellent. Exquisite!
