Here you see a beautyfull egg shaped little box (5x3,5 cm) with can be opened. It is nice decorated with branches with flowers and in two colours. The egg itself is yellow and the bands and two rings are of rose (gold?) colour. Two very tiny holes are in the two parts in the largest site.
There are no hallmarks but it was very easily to clean with a gold juwelry polish cloth. All together I like it very much but what was if for?? I think it could be used as pomander, but I really don't know. Is there somebody who can tell?
In the meantime I think I have the answer: probably it was used for a rosary or as thimber holder.
