The mysterious King Neptune rises out of the sea on the front panel of this handsome box with a mythological theme.

Dating from around 1870, the box is made of silvered bronze/brass. It is signed "L. Oudry pre Editeur" (engraved on the lower left side). Oudry had a foundry in Paris in the late nineteenth century.

There are three unusual relief scenes ornamenting the top and two sides of the box. Two of the scenes, the top and the front medallions feature King Neptune riding his chariot, which is pulled by stallions out of the sea. Winged cherubs hold large conch shells which they use as trumpets. The back medallion features a beautiful woman being transported across the sea waves by two attendants playing the conch shell and holding her flowing scarves.

The box closes perfectly and the hinges are fine. The workmanship and quality are outstanding. The inside of the box is lined with fine crimson silk, the lid is lined with tufted crimson silk with tiny covered buttons. The dimensions are: 2 1/2" tall x 4.75" long x 2 3/4" deep.
