ANTIQUE LA TAUSCA BRASS ROSARY BOX RAISED FLORAL PEARL

THIS AUCTION IS FOR A ANTIQUE "LA TAUSCA" BRASS ROSARY, OR TRINKET BOX.

THIS BEAUTIFULLY CRAFTED "LA TAUSCA" BOX MEASURES 3 3/16" WIDE, AND 4" LONG. THE BOX STANDS 1 3/8" TALL. BOTH THE BASE, AND LID ARE BEVELED, AND THE BASE HAS A ADDITIONAL BEVEL ON THE BOTTOM EDGE. EACH PANEL IS DECORATED WITH RAISED RELIEF FLOWERS, LEAVES, AND SCROLLS. THE BOTTOM HAS ROWS OF SMALL FLOWERS, AND SCROLLS. THE TOP OF THE LID HAS FIVE ROWS OF FLOWERS, THE CENTER BEING CONSIDERABLY LARGER. THE SIDE PANELS OF THE LID HAVE A LARGE FLAT FLOWER, AND LEAF DESIGN, WHILE THE LID EDGE HAS A THIN FLORAL DESIGN. THE FRONT OF THE LID HAS A LIP TO OPEN, AND THE INSIDE HAS A BRASS SNAP TO HOLD CLOSED. THE INSIDE IS FINISHED IN SILK/SATIN, AND T ARE THE REMAINS OF THE "LA TAUSCA" LOGO, AND THE WORD ROSARY(VERY FAINT). THE INSIDE OF THE LID HAS A SMALL WIRE RING TO HOLD AND LIFT SOMETHING AS IT OPENS.

THIS PIECE IS IN WONDERFUL CONDITION. T ARE NO DENTS TO THE BRASS PANELS AT ALL. THE BACK HINGE LOOKS TO HAVE BEEN REPAIRED AT SOME POINT BUT STILL WORKS JUST FINE, AND IS STRAIGHT, AND TRUE. WE MADE NO ATTEMPT TO CLEAN THIS PIECE, THIS WE LEAVE TO THE COLLECTORS AS USUAL.

WE ARE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.
