One of several charming c.early 1900s souvenir items being listed today, back-painted glass (eglomise) views of monuments of Paris, this one being Basilica Sacre Coeur, is a personal favorite. Everyone loves this iconic monument of Paris. A charming rendition with much detail and a bit of mother of pearl shimmering behind the windows. Full measurements noted on photos.
Very good to excellent condition for age and type. This c.1900s deep beveled glass and pressed brass souvenir box is without a single tiny chip. All 5 panels are free of loss, even to tiny and quite usual nips to the deep bevel ridge. Lovely condition! This one has a silk-lined lid interior, and the original padded silk bottom pad-lining. Legs and frame are all in fine order and hinge and clasp work fine. Charming (and rare to find) subject.
