If you adore the Art Nouveau period and all the wonderful pieces is has brought to pass.....
We discovered this piece in Paris...
We are pleased to offer this enchanting C1890-1910 Compact or Pill Box. This one is very special as it comes from the Alsace Lorraine region, famous for its enchanting wines (personally sampled...lol) . It featues a woman in the local traditional costume and two crosses of Lorraine on either side.
It has a mirror on the inside lid and we left the dried flowers inside that were in it when we discovered it, a lovely personal memento from the past.
It can house pills, a photo of a loved one, rouge or whatever small you have to store.
The piece has fine detail with a raised relief with the profile.
The bottom is as delightfully decorated with Florals, leaves and scrolls. Simply every angle of this glorious box has a beautiful visage!
Measures 1 5/8" wide and is 5/8" tall.
