This is a truly special piece of Old Paris artistry. The box features a mix of hand painted and transferred gold detailing accented by lavender and seafoam glaze. The form is remarkable, with elaborately detailed claw feet, delicately twisted handles, crest-like adornments and curtain swags. Atop the lid is a lovely parian sculpture celebrating the story of Romulus and Remus. The twins are being fawned over and ultimately saved by the two maidservants. Box has a removable lid with a sculpture.

Condition good: gilt wear commensurate with age, original fire cracks, some missing fingers and chips on figures, professional touch up to the child figure. Generally good antique condition with fine presentation.

 

Old Paris, ca. 1870
