ENAMEL TINY BOX, circa 1890
is fabulous. It is a really tiny Enamel Box, dating from around 1890.
The box is enamelled in pink with white inside and the lid has a white
background with a little multicolour bouquet of flowers and leaves enamelled
to the top. It has a copper colour metal edge, and
the lid just sits on the base. There is a small chip underneath.
My collectors will know, that enamel does damage fairly easily - so small
faults are to expected in antique pieces- however this does not detract and
it is just so lovely. The lid measures a tiny 2cm (just over .75 of an
inch). It is a French piece and probably made by Sampson of Paris.
