19th Century Pietra Dura Box Grand Tour Souvenir

This kind of small ring or patch box with Florentine Mosaic was one of the most beloved Grand Tour souvenirs. This one is really rare due the motifs of the pietra dura medallion; it shows a small carnation flowers bouquet!

The casket is made of ormolu brass. The pietra dura mosaic shows some beautiful semi-precious stones, like agate and corals. The plaque is made of dark onyx and is surrounded by a lovely pearled baguette.

Very good condition. The mosaic is intact, no missing stones and no cracks. The metal body shows a lovely age patina. Inside partially laid with lovely violet velvet.

Measurements: 1.5 inches in height, 2.2 inches in diameter. The medallion has a diameter of 1.4 inches.

Item ID: ACC_1432
