An exquisite piece for the lover of cloisonne decorative decor. This small box has a heavily gilted body with the most beautiful enamel work in a variety of colors. There are lotus, lilies, butterflies and other florals with a heavy raised beaded edged. The inside of the box, lid and bottom has a gorgeous blue enameling. It stands 2 5/8" to the top of the lid and measures 1 1/2" across the base. It would work for a match safe, toothpick holder or to hold small jewelry or other trinkets. A wonderful piece for your desk or shelf.
This piece is c1950 and shows minimal age wear. A treasure for the collector of fine cloisonne.
