Superb Antique 19th Century Micromosaic Box W/ Gold & Silver Trim: Parrot, Ducks:
$7,100


We are offering a superb, though repaired, 19th Century Box whose Lid is decorated with a charming Micromosaic image that is set in a Gray, marble-like Stone surround. The Micromosaic Lid is trimmed in Silver and solid Gold. The Gold tests in the 9 to 10 Karat range. The Base, comprising Gray Stone that matches the Lid, is also trimmed in Gold. In light of the repairs to the Stone surrounds, we've scrutinized the Micromosaic image as carefully as is possible for any signs of attendant damage. We found no problems whatsoever. We absolutely guarantee the Micromosaic image to be fine, with all Tesserae intact and the image free of hairlines and chips. Regarding overall Condition, The repairs to the broken Gray Stone surrounds are generally skillful and relatively seamless. However, the Box's Base evidences an area where 2 fair sized chips have been clumsily glued back in place. This area should be addressed with a professional restoration in order to bring this Box back to optimal shape. As it is, the Box displays Beautifully an uncommon eye-appeal that draws one's attention to it instantly. The Box measures about 3 1/8 " ( 7.9 Cm ) in Diameter and sits a shade over 3/4 " High ( 2.0 Cm ). Kindly refer to our Photos. Thank you.
