One of several charming 19th century souvenir items being listed today, back-painted glass (eglomise) views of monuments of Paris, this one being Notre Dame Cathedral, is a personal favorite. Everyone loves this iconic monument of Paris. I was in Paris when she caught fire a few years ago, sadly. All the many many buying trips to France begin with a 1st day return to Notre Dame. And now I think I will never see the interior again. But I digress. Full measurements noted on photos.
Very good to excellent condition for age and type. This c.1880s 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 mirror-like lid interior, and has lost the padded silk bottom pad-lining, showing only the tin panel. Legs and frame are all in fine order and hinge and clasp work fine. Charming (and rare to find) subject.
