This is a very sweet little French fabric box with a domed lid filled with a bunch of millinery violets. The box is covered in a floral and striped brocade fabric. There are some age related marks to the fabric but nothing terrible. The millinery violets are gorgeous and made from silk velvet with fabric stems, they are tied into a bunch. They would benefit from being steamed to open the flowers up more. I very carefully hold them near the steam of a boiling kettle which helps the flowers take shape more. Please be careful if you try this as it is easy to get scalded. The box measures 11.5 cm by 8 cm and 10.5 cm tall.
