Exquisite Moss Agate Box with Bronze Mounts
This is a beautiful small size moss agate box with bronze mounts. It comes from France and is dated to the second half of the 19th Century.
The color of the agate plaques is magnificent, a potpourri of blue, black, green, gray and white. The base is made of an agate plate too. The beveled edges and 4 lovely agate bun feet are rounding this wonderful piece. The bronze sides show a wonderful “woven” design.
The condition is good to very good. A fine dent to the upper agate plate in the left corner, see please the pictures – but consider, these are highly enlarged.
A wonderful old piece, hard to find in this quality.
Measurements: 2.4 x 1.2 inches, 1 inch in height.
