Daum Nancy, Aesop's Fable box
Item # 1812005
YEAR SOLD: Unavailable


Daum Nancy, Aesop

I've owned this wonderful box in a miniature version for salt before, but this is the first time I've had it in a larger size, 5½" in diameter.  On one side, done en grisaille, is one of Aesop's fables.  On the other side and the lid are matching acid-etched and enameled red flowers.  The knob at the top plus the rims and the very delicate applied handles are all gilded.  This is a rare and very beautiful box.  Signed.  Mint condition.
