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.

I'm far from sure but I think you box is

French

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