Pill Box Set in Gold with Italian Micromosaic Panels by Christian Petschler

About

This fine antique pill box is an extremely rare piece dating from the early 19th century, created by the French goldsmith Christian Petschler. The box dates from around 1820, is made from 18 carat gold oval, and contains Petschler's maker's mark. Of note are the finely-detailed gold acanthus leaves which adorn the outside of the box. The box incorporates two exceptional and striking Italian micromosaic panels which date from circa 1800. The micromosaic panel on the top of the box depicts a seated dog, while the micromosaic panel on the underside is decorated with an image of two lovebirds pulling a chariot.
