A brass shallow table box with a top mounted enamel panel in the Art Nouveau style. The box itself is more in the Art Deco taste, so it is likely a mid century piece which marries together the two earlier styles. The interior has two divisions with wooden lining, so it was probably intended for cigarettes, although it could be used for many purposes such as a jewellery box, or for use on a desk. It stands on small bracket feet and has a full length hinge down the lid. The top is mirror polished and it's a very stylish piece.
Generally very good with typical period wear of minor scratches etc. Top is very highly polished to a mirror finish, the sides are lacquered and these have some scuffs etc in the lacquer showing as the darker patches.
