There is a green plaque surrounding the portrait (unsure if it's a painted piece, or if its enamel). The tope jewelry compartment opens to reveal a fabric-lined interior. There's another jewelry compartment on the bottom, also fabric-lined. The interior fabric and the way the top is designed looks similar to other Limoges ormolu boxes I've seen. This will make a wonderful shop display or addition to your vanity collection.
The box is in overall very good condition. I will try to be as descriptive as possible on condition of the piece.The fabric lining on the top and bottom compartments is very good, with a bit of fading and fraying. The portrait condition is excellent. The green plaque surrounding the portrait is in good condition and shows wear, as seen in photos. The box's metalwork itself is in very condition with some patina and normal "gold loss" (no broken filigree). The glass is in excellent condition showing no breaks or cracks. The hinges open and close. The bottom hinge you need to open and close slowly because it's a bit wobbly. Doesn't quite close all the way, but could likely be repaired with a bit of effort. No key is included, but the piece appears to have a keyhole as shown in photo (not locked).
