British Arts & Crafts/Art Deco Brass Jewelry Box With Inlaid Glazed Blue Tile c1910
A fascinating bridge piece made as the turn of the century style transitioned to that of the 30s and 40s. One even sees an affinity with Art Nouveau/Secessionist... with a glance back at the Medieval. What is clear is that this is a beautiful feat of hand-craftsmanship incorporating many of the design ideals of the new century. We can call it a crossroads piece.
Measures 5 1/2" x 2 1/2" x 4". Lined in wood.
