    Mom kept Bobbie pins in this little box. It's about 4"by 3". Can it be cloisonne as well? Not sure when she got it, I assume she's had this since she was young.

      This is about the same age as the red vase, Chinese cloisonne cigarette box, when cigarettes did not have filters and were only 3 inches long. Pre 1950s. Pretty floral motif of summer peony flowers. Thanks for posting.

      I love that the n is backwards. Seems English must be just as hard to translate from Chinese as it is to translate into Chinese.
