Offered for sale is an exquisite little trinket or presentation box done in mother of pearl and brass and featuring a lovely painted cameo in the center.
This is an elongated oval shaped box. Both the front and back have a beautiful opalescent mother of pearl panels encased in etched brass. Inside is some old dark blue velvet material. The cameo is of a beautiful woman in pink, cream and blue. She has lovely detailed features.
It measures approximately 3.5 inches long by 1.5 inches wide and sits about 3/4 inch high. It is in very good condition considering its age which I believe is mid to late 1800's.
A great gift for the trinket box collector, a great presentation box for an antique bar pin or a wonderful vanity item to keep little items like small earrings or a special piece of jewelry.
