Lovely Antique Papier Mache Jewellery Or Trinket Box

This is a beautiful antique jewellery/trinket box, made of papier-mache. It was made during the Art Nouveau period, circa 1890-1900, and is a lovely piece of Arts & Crafts.

The exterior has a black lacquered finish, and the interior a red lacquered finish.

The lid has a beautiful transfer printed scene of a Dragonfly among Roses. The print has clever 'crackled' detail to give the appearance of paint. This is what the decoration appears to be created from at first glance.


This box is in lovely condition for its 100 plus years of age. The exterior has dulled somewhat over the years to a matt black shade. The interior is still a vibrant red and has retained its glossy sheen.

The box is structurally sound with no cracks. There are some surface marks to the exterior as you'd expect with a papier-mache box of this age.
