Here is fine french bulle de savone opaline crystal powder, jewelry or trinket box, dated to early 20th century. This heavy (over 1.5 lb) box painted throughout with colorful flowers and gilt floral accents. The quality is magnificent, glass illuminates with a fiery opalescence when put against light, literally glowing. The box set into ornate gilded mounts with hinge, which works properly.
