This 7 1/4" x 3 1/4" 1 3/4" high hinged lid box is silver plate, with a handle. On both sides of the lid is a bas-relief depiction of the Jan Steen (1626-1679) painting of the Feast of St. Nicholas festival(Dec.5) traditionally dedicated to Dutch children. The scene is a family celebrating St. Nicholas Day. The children have just received their presents; the little girl is quite spoiled with her doll and a bucket of sweets and toys, while the boy crying on the left found a cane in his shoe. The older girls holds the shoe up while another child points to it and laughs at the boy. Grandma in the background nods reassuringly to the lad (perhaps she has a present tucked away). The original painting hangs in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. Enjoy the beauty of this artist in silver plate form, perhaps displaying this box at Christmas time. The inside of the box has a rich patina. I have other silver and silver plate items listed here, and will combine orders for discount and shipping savings.
