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, superb French opaline glass in Celeste blue, an ormolu cased bonbon or patch pot box with a lift-up lid, architectural painting. Carriages and hosemen included in this elaborate small painting. Photos show the fine details, condition, measurements.

Very good to excellent condtion throughout for age and type. No chips or flaws on the opaline glass, and no dents or losses on the intricate ormolu. Clasps on side works, and the hinge is a pin-hinge, totally functional. Very very slight loss of paint on outer edges of the sky, no other issues at all to report. Measurements noted on photos. Very pretty!
