I have had many boxes that have had inlays of wood but never one with all this inlay of fine brass strands. It is not wire but actually very fine rectangular shaped. It is completely covering the cover as well as the four outside sections of the base. Except for the base insert it is made of one solid piece. The top is also notched out of a solid piece. The cover has a 6" section of one strand missing on the outside edge of the right side and bottom right corner...
Voorschoten is a small village and municipality in the western Netherlands, in the province of South Holland. This beautiful small box with the silver decoration of an old mid-evil scene came from that ares. The back has a silver and blue sticker with the town name and a facsimile of their flag. The silver scene is stamped "E.P.N.S. Holland 90 over 2". With an oval hallmark that I cannot identify. Beautifully crafted it measures 6-1/8" x 4-1/2" x 1-7/8"...
Very attractive small black lacquered wooden box with gold floral design. It is signed on the inside of the top lid "Chantilly". I am not sure if this is a box that was used to house the Chantilly Perfume Products or not but it would make a very attractive vanity piece. Measures 7.5" x 4.25" x 1". In excellent condition.
