|Offered here is a charming small box of brass and blue enamel, made in Florence Italy in the early 20th century, probably around 1930. It will hold pills, a necklace or some other trinket or, perhaps, business cards. It has a lovely little shape with beveled edges and rounded corners. The cerulean blue and engraved brass top has an inset with a green ground. The bottom is all hand engraved as well, in a larger pattern. The brass has a nice patina and feels good in the hand. The interior is marked "Hand Made in Florence Italy". The box measures 3" by 2.25" and is less than 1/2" deep. It is in excellent condition.|
