French 19th century blue enamel and gilt bronze mount casket from Bourg in Bresse
A square box of Bresse blue enamel with gilt bronze mounts. Convex plates are decorated with arabesques in gold fillets and seed of flowers adorn the five sides. Enameled imitation of pearls with turquoise and opals adorn the flowers and frames the plates. The box rests on four feet spinning tops covered with leaves. In the pure tradition of the Bresse region, the "Bressans" enamels always made ​in ​Bourg (Bresse) are an unique expertise dating back to the nineteenth century. Entirely handmade, they are recognizable by their decorations of arabesques and enamel relief imitating the semi precious pearls.
