A small vintage or retro oval floral design cloisonne and gilded metal pill or ring box with hinged lid. The underside of the box is enamelled in rich blue.
Although the lid closes crisply, the hinge itself, though sound, seems a bit wobbly. There is some loss to the metal gilding throughout, which we have tried to show in the photographs. There is also unevenness in the casting just below the hinge to the back (again see photographs). In addition, there is a tiny dink to the enamel inside the box (which is also enamelled in rich blue). We have tried to show this in the photographs but with limited success. These issues are reflected in the price.
The box measures approximately 1.5in by just over 1.125in at the base and stands just under 0.5in deep. Exact age unknown but probably dates from the middle part of last century.
