Art Nouveau Floral Oval Casket Box with Banded Agate Slice
A lovely turn of the century iron box with a repeating floral pattern and a bright red agate slice for a lid. The box has iron work that is quintessentially French. The drooping romantic flowers that decorate the sides of the box have all the style and design of the Art Nouveau period patterns. The box gold tone iron-work is reminiscent of that found in the entrances to old metro stations in Paris. The iron work is reticulated, and the flowers have a faded painted look but the yellow and green colors that remain contrast beautifully with the bold orange-red lid. The box is inspired by nature, like so much decorative art of its era. The oval shaped slice of agate is mounted nicely and framed by braided iron work. The lid holds open, and opens and closes perfectly with a nice sheen that catches the light as it moves. The entire box is raised by small feet, adding a nice delicate touch. The box measures 3 inches wide by 2 1/2 inches by 1-3/4 inches tall. Because it is made or reticulated iron-work you can always see inside of the box, which is a handy design element. It is perfect for safe keeping small personal items, such as jewelry. Makes a nice addition to a dresser table, a bright floral box to celebrate Springtime.
