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 village landscape in oval covered with gorgeous early paper and shimmery foil raised trim along the edges with raised floral paper on the sides.
It measures 7 1/2" x 5 1/2" x 2 1/2" and the paper is still very bright and beautiful. There is typical minimal wear as to be expected from most ephemera but it is still very bright and beautiful; some stains on the bottom and a few spots under the litho inside cover and on the very edge bottom left a silver paper trim embellishment is gone amiss but because the cover paper is all there it is really not noticeable.
French in origin, circa 1800s
