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 an early one, early white opaline glass, an ormolu cased patch box with a lift-up lid, with architectural paintings. The scene is the Odelisk (Concord) and you see the Arch de Triumph in the distance, a promenade through the Tuileries Gardens. Age to the patina on ormolu. Photos show the fine details, condition, measurements.
Very good to excellent condtion throughout for age and type. No chips or flaws on the cranberry glass, and no dents or losses on the intricate ormolu. Lid rests evenly, and the center hinge is a pin-hinge, totally functional. Measurements noted on photos. Very pretty!
