This is a wonderful small object of high quality and in very good condition. Probably made between 1900 and 1925. Says "Birks" and "Made in France" on the bottom. Birks was a well known jeweler based in Winnipeg, Canada. Beautiful filigree work and the lid and cushion are all original. Some wear to bottom.
This is a small but very unique piece from the art nouveau period. Circa 1920, we obtained this piece from an individual in South America. Bright red glaze and lots of detail to the face. Approx. 3.5 inches top to bottom.
