This is a 19th c. box of cameo carved mother of pearl, depicting eagles or some other big raptors, with brass sides and a tight snug hinged lid. It measures 2 & 1/8" by 13/16". It is engraved on the inner lid with the motto: Ramis Recisis Altius. According to Wiki, this is a Latin-language translation coined by Italian writer and poet Gabriele D'Annunzio. Its meaning is that the most sunken plant grows higher. It was dedicated to Emma Agnetti for his work in favor of the Reduci Combattenti. However, the motto had already appeared in a book by Giovanni Ferro Teatro d'Impresa (Venice, 1623). It is in excellent condition.
