Vintage and Antique Linens by Em's Heart
Antique Austrian Pierced Metal and Glass
Boudoir Basket with Needlepoint
Item Number C30907
I confess that as a girly girl I can not resist charming (beyond charming) little treasures like this...can you??
I am sure it had a special place...a special purpose, like cradling potpourri...but, reeeaallly, it would be enough to just gaze upon it once or twice a day as it sits on your favorite linen bedecked dressing table turning up the corners of your smile every single time. But if you insist, it could be filled with anything from cinnamon hearts to bobby pins -- or potpourri -- to make this an unusually charming and efficient container.
A glass bowl is fitted to an elaborate pressed and gilt metal frame with a handle and matching lid. A sweet needlepoint roses bouquet in the center of the lid is enclosed in glass on both sides. The glass bowl has a couple of tiny chips on the rim, shown below, and the lid is slightly bent on the rim, also shown.
Imported from France but stamped in the lid, "Made in Austria"....likely 1900 - 1920's. Adorable! Excellent condition, offered as found. 4.5" tall X 4.5" wide
