FRENCH OPALINE BOX WITH ORMOLU MOUNTS. Circa 1860
This gorgeous French Opaline Glass Box with Ormolu Mounts dates from circa 1860.
There is a small painted panel in the top. The scene looks like the Pont Neuf with a Horseman Statue in the foreground. This panel has a glass cover under which some dust has collected over the years.
The hinge works well.
It is original throughout.
