Early 19th Century English Gold Case.

Gold coloured case, rectangular shape. The hinged lid, the frame and the sides and the base are decorated with fine "honeycomb" guilloche. A fine frieze of green gold scrolls frames this composition. On the lid, a central panel bears the inscription "ricordadza" in gothic lettre which means "Remember-me".
This style of box was most likely used to hold toiletry items. It may have contained a tongue scraper, a pick, a small brush, or any other small toiletry or hygiene item in use during the 18th and early 19th centuries. The inscription "Remember-me" underlines the sentimental value of such objects.
