This is a wonderful French gilded dresser box with porcelain and polished stone insets. The top of the box features a hand painted porcelain oval inset with roses and other flowers against a cobalt blue and gold background. All four sides of the box have inset polished pink stones. Great ornate ormolu work! This piece is French, likely dating to the late 1800's. The box measures 3" wide, 2 1/8" tall and 2 1/8" deep. It retains the original silk lining, with some stains. I do not believe this piece ever had a wood base as some earlier boxes did. Minor oxidation on the top of the piece. The box does properly open and close. A cute little addition to an antique dresser box collection!
