Antique French Button Box, Silk Lined


translation missing: en.products.item.price.price_per_unit_html

Measures:  8” wide, 1.5” tall, 7” deep

This Victorian era button box originated in France.  The floral decoration is beautiful, the paint is aged to perfection – it is the picture of dignity!  The inside is lined with cream colored silk as thin as butterfly wings.  There is a soft padding under the silk.  The silk is almost completely intact.  There is a fabric label at the top of the cover, it is very subtle and reads “Manufacture de Boutons de C.M. Colonge, a Liege.  Prix 6 louis.”.  The wooden box is both sturdy and dainty.  The cover has a bend in it, as shown in the photo.  The latch is missing.  The hinges are present and work fine.  Can you tell I am a little bit in love with this button box? 😊
