A beautiful antique French cardboard box covered with Dresden foil paper, embossed trim and hand tinted lithograph on the cover. These early boxes are perfect for smaller dolls or poupee's and their trousseau. This one features a lovely pastoral scene with children (the mother in the wagon with her baby is especially sweet) with a unique special design on the sides that is not often found covered with an early shimmery foil print paper.
It measures 9" x 6 1/2" x 3" and the paper is still very bright and beautiful. The only thing besides general minimal wear and a tad of foxing (?) inside is the top on the left side there is about 1 1/2" missing trim. These old paper boxes are becoming rarer and rarer especially in this kind of condition where it's not faded or scratched up.
French in origin, circa 1800s
