This is an eclectic glass box: the shape is very art deco, as the bird mounted as a finial, but not the detailed ormolu around the top. The peak of the bird seems made of ivory. Sergio rebound the screw nut that was missing when we bought it a year ago to Dorita. The box is about 15 cm diameter and very heavy. German? French? 1920?

    This is wonderful Sylvia. It certainly has a continental look to it; French I think.
