Fantastic piece of Art Nouveau. Very large measuring 16" x 10" with the viewable portion being 14" x 8" basically. Great Art Nouveau swag ormolu appliques at 12, 3, 6, and 9 o'clock on this.
Super c1850 lacquer snuff box with faux tortoiseshell design that I believe is a papier mache. Measures about 3 5/8" x 2 1/4" and is about 1" thick. Hinge looks to be brass and works very well....nice tight close.
This could be used for a multitude of things and is a nice piece of folk art. Features the Bohemian smoking monk theme with oak leaves on vine decorated on the sides. I think it originally had a shelf in it, so it could be used as a medicine cabinet or smoking cabinet.
I was told this was Japanese and dates to the Meiji era. Very fine hand decorated brass jar with round impressed decorations. Measures about 5" tall and 4 7/8" diameter.
This dates to c1820 or so and is treen and horn lined interior, with exterior penwork. Lid opens and closes. My visible inspection looks like some of the thin veneer(horn?) has wear as you might expect, some age wear to lid edge......
