Another Antique French Faience Box with a bird in tree .. Wonderful colours with a pewter clam shell clasp that closes perfectly as does the entire hinge. Hand-Painted in the 'petit-feu' method which is firing in kiln at lower temperature so unique colours can be painted by artist..In very good condition, the glaze is like new and the colours vibrant.... measures 4" x 3" x 1 1/2". We love French faience.. A French dealer said that the metal mounts are called "gent" in French, 950 sterling silver with 5% copper or other metals added.
