Superbly done french art nouveau silver plate powder box. Box features a delightful organic nature motif and also sports what appears to be gold plating on the interior. This box was designed as a chatelaine piece and has a ring for hanging on a chain. Box has a bezel inside the lid which may have been intended for holding a small mirror but the box does not have a mirror included. The box is in great condition with little wear.
Has one noticeable wear spot on the center of the lid where brass is showing through the silver plate. There is also a few spots that appear tarnished inside the box, but this could also be powder residue. Box measures approx 1 3/4" x 1 3/4" x 3/4. This item is made of brass and silver plate.
