    I found this metal box at the RAD (River Arts District) Asheville, NC last week. 3"x1.75" with transitional Art Nouveau - Craftsman motifs on 4 sides and the lid. Background photo 1, 2: Gustav Klimt, "Music" 1895. Thank you truth or dare for your ID of stamp box!! The desk set you linked is amazing....I thought it was a pill box. I love CW experts!!

    The last pic was taken of a downtown bldg. from the top level of the parking garage by the Flatiron (disappointing, not like NYC or Omaha, NE Flatiron bldgs.) ANYWAY, I love the blue and yellow tiles and the weather drips from the parking garage's concrete wall.

      Mary it looks like an antique stamp box which would have been part of a fancy Art Nouveau desk set. I love it - gorgeous.

      Such as this Tiffany example, with the small stamp box partially open in the middle of the image.

      Eileen - yes it is, thought it was a pill box!

      Phil - yes, it was $6. I think the seller thought it was 70's revival.

      Share - thank you for loving it too, I am not sure what it should be called either :)

      Judy - thank you for loving it!!

      Thank you olecody - wouldn't it be cool if it was Tiffany, oh well, nope but nice and I love it. Hate to hear of old historic buildings gone to the wrecking ball.

      Dear Elisabeth - thank you for your comment! My favorite TV station would feature only Art History and Museums! And my 2nd favvorite - Travel!!
