French Art Nouveau Gilt Jewelry Casket

French Art Nouveau Gilt Jewelry Casket


This gilt box is elegant in stature, harkening to the romance of Art Nouveau and the drama of the Rococo movement, while remaining strikingly symmetrical. The box stands on four animal-like feet, with sweeping fauna climbing each leg. The box is banded by a round geometric pattern intertwined with blooming roses on the front facade. The hinged lid of the box features a wreath of an abundance of roses, berries, and other flowers held by a billowing ribbon tied in a bow near the hinge.

The interior of the box boasts its original pink silk-satin tufted lining, piping, and covered buttons. Closed, this box measures 3 inches high x 4.75 inches wide x 3 inches deep. The underside of the box clearly states the maker “Orfevrerie Dilecta” which translates to Dilecta Goldsmiths. Beneath is the mold number, “Dèposè 58” and the country of manufacture, “Fabrication Française”. This box is pattern #58.
