French Jewelry Box / Casket with Paris Motifs "Eglomise" is the term applied to the back-painted glass panels in these old French souvenirs. Most of them date 1800s, though they were made up through about 1910 in this manner, too. Later ones often have a photo set in instead. The early ones are our favorites, sometimes a screened ink-line like drawing that is then hand colored, or sometimes a full miniature painting original, all worked on the back side of a panel or convex plaque of glass.
This one is superb - a view of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France. It's in fine condition with pink silk fabric.
A beautiful one of a kind gift that will make anyone feel like royalty. And we love the reusing aspect of it!
