We've just bought the collection of a longtime good customer, and will have 31 pieces in all listing soon. Each sold separately. The term, "eglomise" refers to a decorative technique of painting on the backside of glass. These are each little works of art. The collection varies from c.1830-1890. Will describe each as listed:
This is a rather unique and ornate early 1800s souvenir box, back-painted (eglomise) view up top is elaborate and nicely preserved for age and type. The box is a hinged jewelry casket on cabriole legs and adorned with pressed brass putti. Measurements are noted directly on the photos.
Very good condition for age and type, the painting on glass ha no chips nor breaks, a very little paint disturbance among the clouds, but not much for the age and type. The interior blue paper lining is in condition commensurate with age, the inner lid lining is no longer there.
