A truly wonderful and genuine antique brass box with open worked sides that are lined with a wooden interior. This is given a black surface treatment that really accentuates the brass open work which has had a gilded finish, now somewhat rubbed off.
A classical Puti figure adorns the top- whilst the main decoration is a mix of scrolls and foliate details.
The wooden interior includes a removable divide panel which suggest two different contents, and reminded me of the standard to sided tea caddy? Other options may have been tobaccos for blending?
Either way the divide can be removed to make an elegant and very useful general purpose casket box for all manner of effects!
Surface wear as mentioned- otherwise excellent original condition.
The box stands 10cm open its little squat bun feet, and is 20.5cm x 14.5cm, weight is 2.1 kilos approx.
