This adorable little French box has a lot going for it: a hand crafted hard wood box with a domed top and small closure loop and four small hand crafted glass bottles with stoppers. The box is from the first half of the 19th century (1800 - 1850) and does have some age related defects: two of the bottles have chips, one on a stopper
and one on the neck of a bottle. There is also only one way all four bottles fit in the box so that it will close. This was solved by the previous owner by putting a number on the bottom of each bottle and a corresponding number in the slot where it belongs. The bottles must have been hand made, as they seem to be of slightly different dimensions, though looking identical. The wood box is caved all over in a zig-zag pattern very well executed.
Measurements are: 4" by 4 1/8" and 4 1/2" tall.
