Enamelled flowered lidded powder box - Bohemian or French?
« on: August 28, 2012, 08:44:28 AM »
Any thoughts please on whether this is Bohemian or French? 
It's in my top three for favourites  ;D Perfect condition and beautifully made/finished - the glass is 4mm thick and all edges bevelled inside and out.
Measures 4 7/8" wide by 3 1/2" tall.  It has a particular colour glass that matches a couple of Legras vases I have so I was thinking possibly French?

Thank you Davem :)
I'm not at all sure what they are but the little speckly bits on them are so typical 30's - I have velvet ribbon with something similar on.  It reminds me of 30s illustrations in childrens picture books.

I think the flowers are cornflowers. Very pretty.

French

especially as they are conflowers -much more popular on French Glass than Bohemian

Cornflowers are used quite extensively in Hungarian pottery I've discovered.  I'm wondering if this might turn out to be Hungarian possibly.  Just adding for reference.
