Antique 19th century French white opaline glass box. Featuring a unique melon bombe style form finished with gilt painted accents.

Measures 6 1/2" length x 4" wide x 5 1/2" height. In overall good antique condition with wear commensurate with age and use. Lacking a key. No chips to the glass. A small bruise as shown on the edge of the lid and one side of the hinge with a flaw.
