Early 19th Century Swiss gold and enamelled snuff box.

Snuff box or rectangular box with cut sides in gold and translucent enamel in purple color. The enamel reveals a fine diamond-shaped guilloche pattern. The hinged lid is adorned with a shield-shaped motif, the heart of which is set with half pearls arranged in the form of roses. The gold is left in reserve to form coiling leaves and stems. The motif is underlined with a white enamel frieze. The border of the box is hemmed with a sky blue enamel frieze and gold floral patterns. On the box, the translucent enamel panels reveal the same guilloche pattern as on the cover and the bottom. The cut sides present a decoration of trophies with quiver and flowery basket framed by colonnade.
