French antique jewelry or trinket box with an L. Monogram engraved on the glass lid.    Here we have a really lovely little piece of French boudoir decor in the form of a  beautiful little keepsake box . This little brass box dates back to the nineteenth century and has a quilted  blue silk lining and stands on the original four ball feet with a thick bevelled glass hinged lid.                                                                                               Condition: The overall condition is good for it's age, however there are a few small details to note. The little catch at the front on the lid is missing so it does not click shut but the lid does sit nicely on the top. The silk lining as you can see has faded in places and is starting to come away at the sides. The box does also sit with a slight wobble on its four feet. Jewelry caskets of this type and age do usually come with small faults perfectly in keeping with their age and wear and tear over many years. It is often the timeworn charm, patina and uniqueness of antique pieces that sets them apart from modern copies. These pieces were crafted at a time when quality was very important as was the skill of the artisan making them.  An original gift for someone, perhaps with the initial L. It would make a wonderful addition to a dressing table and look fabulous if you are trying to create that original French boudoir look. Please check the dimensions carefully this is a small box.
