Victorian Paper Covered Box with Theorem Painted Pears on Branch

Regular price $75.00

A theorem painting of pears on velvet with embossed silver paper trim, green papered sides and a pretty pretty pink lining--of course I had to say yes to this one.  I've found just a few out there along similar lines, which help me date it to 1880 or so, though I'm not entirely certain what it once held. A lovely thing now for delivering a special gift, or just a special gift in itself. 

4  7/8" x 2 11/16" x 1 1/8" and in very good antique condition.
