Description
Box (1) - Art Deco - bronzed nickel
Italy - First half 20th century

Wonderful Art Nouveau original item in nickel bronze, metal alloy used in that time.
The top is enriched with a composition of fruit and leaves, the final part has fruits and metal waves and the edge is scalloped. The front has alternating vertical lines of fruit and leaves under the four black feet. Lined with original ochre coloured silk inside, front sewn with stripes.
Given its size this is a nice ornamental item great for bedroom furniture, for your jewellery or in the living room. Missing key. I found it in this condition and placed it in a display case where I keep my collection of boxes.
