Bejeweled Box

A rarified gift fit for royalty. This artisan made objet d'art consists of faux gemstones created in crystalline glass embedded in a 24k gold glaze. Made in France circa 1960. The heavy lid sits atop a rosewood box lined in felt. This style work is generally seen in similarly bejeweled French mirrors, but this is the only box we've seen. A little treasure designed to hold your other treasured baubles.
