Antique Coconut Box Decorated with Gold Brass Cagework in Original Case

About

Shipping: For this item we offer free shipping to continental US, Canada and Asia Information: This egg-shaped box is made of a carved coconut by the Belgian jeweler H.C. Cielissen 'Fabricant Bijoutier Orfevre'. It is decorated with a beautiful gold brass cagework which surrounds the box from both sides. The gold color of the cagework provides a beautiful contrast against the natural dark color of the coconut. The rim of the box is silvered and closes very well. What makes this egg box very special is that it is still in its original hardcover case, which is lined with silk and in very good condition. Inside the case, there still is a clear signature by the jeweler H.C. Cielissen who made this beautiful piece. The case provides the perfect way to display the egg and to keep it safe (although the case does not completely close with the egg in it anymore). Condition: The condition of the coconut box is very good. The cagework is complete and intact and the coconut box itself is in very good shape. There are some tiny spots where the cagework has been restored over the years with glue, however this is hardly visible. Measurements: Coconut box Height 11.5 cm / 4.5 in. Diameter 8.cm / 3.5 in. Hardcover case Height 17 cm / 6.7 in. Depth 9.5 cm / 3.7 in. Width 12 cm / 4.7 in. This beautiful piece would enhance any collection and is a real eyecatcher.
