An early 20th century French trinket box. The lid features a hand painted miniature of a lady and a musician (signed FGuerau), which sits behind glass and is surrounded by faux tortoiseshell. The outside of the base is decorated with a repeating raised pattern of stylised leaves and flowers, whilst the interior of the box is lined in red velvet. The red velvet interior is intact, and the box is in lovely condition.
The box shows light superficial wear only visible when viewed close up and to be expected on a used item of this age. The lid and base remain perfectly oval, allowing the lid to be lifted and lowered easily whilst still closing firmly; there is no lock or catch. Please see all the photographs for condition.
