Antique French paper mache powder box lacquered papermache box w painted chinoiserie Napoleon III decor papiermache papier mache lacquer box
Rare antique french red lacquered paper mache powder box with chinoiserie decor with people, bird and floral details. Naopleon iii period: mid to late 1800s. This pretty lacquered papermache round box has a hand painted chinoiserie design with gold gilt paint, black, gray tones and some white. In a good vintage condition, as shown on the pictures, some wear to the lacquer and paint, this does not detract from the beauty of this gorgeous papier mache box. Sizes: 2.6 inches high (6.5cm), 3.2 inches wide in diameter (8cm). These boxes in a red tone are very rare. A highly collectible item which would add that typical french napoleon 3 decor touch to your home. This is a very pretty powder box.
Much prettier in reality than on the pictures, believe me. I have another napoleon iii chinoiserie powder box for sale, in a rare red tone, please take a look.
