Art Deco La Tausca Pearls Presentation Box

for your consideration is a beautiful La Tausca pearl presentation box made somew between 1915 to the 1930's. Brass with seven amethyst faux stones. Heavy detailed filigree ornate work on this awesome piece. The interior is lined with silk and reads "La Tausca, Pearls" in gold print. To give you an idea of how massive piece is, I weighed it at 1 1/2 lbs ! It measures a large 9 1/4" across by 5" deep by 3" tall at the crown of the center jewel. This must have been the presentation box for t most expensive pearl necklace for them to go to this expense and detail. In overall perfect condition on the outside. As shown in the photos the interior silk shows some wear around the edges. I have set a very low opening bid and reserve on this piece so watch closely and email with any questions. Thanks for looking! Dale
