A nice enamel on copper (I believe) box I think was made in France in the mid 19th century. It looks very much like the Staffordshire Battersea boxes from the Bilston area but the colors and flowers are different.
A really nicely hand painted scene! The sides of the box have a turquoise ground color with a white flower panel to the front and back and lots of nice raised white trim. The underside has the same turquoise color and raised white trim. The box is in superb condition with just a touch of wear mainly to the underside from age and use which is normal.
A little glue residue along the bottom edge of the mounts - they must have been loose at some point. The mounts are oxidized which is normal. All in all as nice a piece as you can hope for!The piece is about 1.5 inch tall, 3.5 inches wide and 1.75 inches deep. It is not marked but that is pretty much always the case.
