    A really fine French silver gilt compact, engine turned with green and black banded enamel and a signed fishing scene enamelled to the lid. The body of the box is engine turned/guilloche enamel in green with black highlights and is gilded inside and out, with a small mirror in the lid. The top is so beautifully painted with a fisherman in a boat on a lake, with overhanging trees. The detail on such a small painting is amazing, even the fishing line is visible. The painting is also signed, but we have been unable to identify the artist.

     
    This piece dates to circa 1900, has a French mark and is a real beauty, the photographs really do not do it justice.
     
    Condition - Near perfect - no damage or wear to the enamel on the top or sides, good hinge, internal mirror, internal and external gilding in fine condition with no wear.
