Favourite Item
A delightful little antique continental box, the lid panel having a hand painted miniature landscape on porcelain (unsigned). The side and base panels are made of real mother of pearl. The metal framework is gilt metal (base metal unknown, possibly brass). Excellent quality. Top measures 6 x 4.75 cms. Height 2.6 cms. Continental. Circa 1780.
This charming little box is in good but used condition. The mother of pearl has a hairline crack and a tiny chip on the base panel. There is a possible porcelain restoration on the right edge of the panel. On top the corners have some lead repairs in the corners and there is a very small piece of the gilt metal missing in the bottom right hand corner.

Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
