This is a delightfully EARLY little dragee/candy box that was produced in France circa 1820. The sides of this restauration era box are constructed from card and silvered Dresden paper, the lid and base is constructed from wonderful old bubbled glass with a blue/grey hue. The central circular scene depicts a seated cut paper dog on lookout in the woodland. This is a quality, decorative little item that is perfect for anyone who loves dogs or all things French. Wouldn't this be a treat for an antique Fashion doll:)
Measuring: Width 2.75 inch (7 cm) by height 1 inch (2.5 cm) by depth 1 7/8 inch (5 cm).
Condition: Very good, sound condition with no chips or cracks to the very old glass. There is of course minor wear commensurate with age including a few old water stains to the interior.
