For your consideration is this rare, beautiful, and unique trinket box, circa 1900. It has a hand painted enamel Art Nouveau portrait miniature on the lid. It is signed Novo. The box of made of ormolu finished dore, meaning gold wash over brass. It is probably French in origin and it looks like it was used to store face powder.

It measure 1.55 inches in diameter and is just over .5 inches tall. The portrait has two repairs to the enamel, one at the base of her headband and the other on the background in front of her face. I have priced it down to reflect this damage. Still, it is a magnificent and beautiful piece that would make a wonderful addition to anyone's collection.
