A continental mirror glass jewellery box, possibly Flemish. A large red marbled vitrolite glass box has mosaic mirror glass sides in mirror and burgundy glass to match the vitrolite glass lid and base. The glass lid is acid etched and reads – Souvenir de 1ere Communion, obviously at sometime a 1st Communion gift box, dating from around the 1920s-1930s. The inside is lined in red felt and the handle is of wrought iron with ivy detail.
Measures 13 inches (33cm) wide, 9 inches (23cm) deep and 4 inches high (10cm).
Very good condition. Ideal for a jewellery box.
