few 2weeks ago i was looking for a book about gallé to buy.... and eureka un google image i saw a similar box-) in the national museum's database.... with all mesures ! bingo that's it !
i bought two book, the whol glass collection of ECOLE DE NANCY MUSEUM and the catalogue of MEISENTHAL MUSEUM both have a different model of it box!
this was produced by CHARLES GALLE in Meisenthal circa 1867 and the model was designed buy his son EMILE GALLE one of first models he created. thes models where usually not signed they only put some paper labels, somtimes signed with inked script signature. on it for the glass and porcelain shop of Charles Gallé.
