About

Decorated all-over with Gothic arches and tracery, cutout of superposed sheets of red copper and brass, nailed and screwed on to the wooden case, the inside lined with yellow silk. Topped with a curved handle, held by two Gothic rosettes. With bronze key.

This box may have been made as a masterpiece of a metal worker and is clearly influenced by the great French designer and architect Violet le Duc, who inspired the gothic revival movement in France in the 19th century.

Dimensions: 35 x 22 x 28 cm.
