Catching the eye this time is a rather attractive late 19thC Black Forest Jewelry box. Produced by the flourishing Swiss carving industry based around Brienz these well figured souveniers were popular amongst those enjoying a `Grand Tour`.
The finer pieces by recognised artists were displayed at various Grand Exhibitions around the world and quite at home in the palaces and mansions of Europes elite..
This particular box is 9 3/4" high and features carved panels of wildflowers as well as a pair of game birds on the lid. The inner compartments are lined with what appears to be the original purple satin material.
A pratical yet decorative piece to enjoy.
