Sister of the one previously posted, but never had a hinge.

This one had big issues...
Surely falled at one time, jade broken, mount inside rim damaged, lacks in glued stone carvings flowers basket!

The old restores aren't mine ;-)

The lid decor has a strong art deco look.

I only replaced the red bug with polymer clay tinted with marker, and glued a tiny opal in the bouquet!

Of course, what I prefer is the house fly inlay.
:-D

This one I'll let it as is!!!

    I love it kyra, it's a beauty the detail and colours are amazing. Can you tell me what stones they used, I do think I can see lapis, Coral, Carnelian, Green Jade, Tiger Eye and Turquoise?

    Right Jean, good stones id!
    One more to add, blood jasper for the leaves applied on the basket :-)

    Thank you for your interest and love !
