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.
