Antique French Hand Painted Gold Box with Shells, made in the early 1900's. The wooden box was painted with metallic gold paint, then decorated with shells and sea weed. Such a charming reminder of the sea! Signed by the artist in the bottom right corner. Bought in France.
There is wear, missing paint and plenty of patina on this decorative box. The key has run away, too. The hinges are sturdy, and the wood is in good condition, a small separation on the top left as shown. A charming box to display in your French style home.
