From the Cerri Nestore company in Volterra, Tuscany, this superb large antique trinket or Jewellery box is a true gem. Made from a cream Alabaster stone, it has gilt metal mounts, with a faux pearl on the finial. The hinged ball shaped box measures 12cm diameter, and has a stem of 3 gilt metal Dolphins. They rest on another Alabaster base which has a gilt metal frame and claw feet. It carries the original label underneath, and apart from needing a light clean ( I did not want to immerse this in water) it is in lovely condition. It weighs 1.9kg unpacked, and measures 27cm in total height.
