A Fabulous Napoleon III Period Tahan Style Enamel and Gold Gilded Jewellery Casket. Two beautiful entwined enamel leaves adorn the lid suggesting it was a present of some romantic significance.
Not all Tahan boxes were signed. Some elite of that society thought it was vulgar to display the name of the artisan who worked for them. It was their unique jewellery box and they did not want others going to Alphonse Tahan looking for one similar to it. A bit like two A listed stars turning up at the Oscars wearing the same dress. The owner paid a premium to Tahan for that exclusivity.
The box measures 5 by 3 inches by 4 inches high.
It is in excellent condition with just some normal usage perfume stains around the edges of the lid lining.
