Dating to the early 1900s may I offer this French pharmacy box - a little on the large side - that has been embellished with some vintage materials - a Victorian chromolithograph/trade card (number 5 of a series) and a Gold Dresden phrase that reads TO GREET YOU (along with a horseshoe for luck at the center)! The graphic shows 3 children trying to move an overly large egg - seems this card may have been printed for Easter. The box is hinged at the back so when the lid is lifted, it isn't going anywhere!
Condition: The front of the box is perfect - the inside shows VERY LIGHT foxing. The interior could be padded with some fabric or some paper shavings could be added to cushion a gift. The bottom of the box is perfect. Overall, just a lovely presentation box that doesn't need any gift wrapping!
Size: 4-1/4" x 3" with a depth of 1-1/2".
Final Comments: Just delightful and definitely ONE OF A KIND!
