An antique ring box featuring a gilt finish and Art Nouveau design. Look at the nice raised floral area on the lid and back. You'll see it sits on 4 little legs. It has a replaced satin lining in the base and lid which makes it perfectly functional for that special ring that you own.
We do not see a maker's mark on the bottom so we cannot tell you the exact manufacturer. We would place this c. 1900-1910.
We call this a ring casket because that is about all that could fit into it. It is small; measuring 2.5" long x 1.75" wide x just over 2" high at the back. You'll see some wear to the finish but there is no damage to report.
