Description

19th century likely Continental bronze and champleve enamel table box purchased at the sale at Belinda Gentle's home after her death in 2005. She was an internationally famous antique dealer and author of the main texts on antique metalwork.
Her husband Rupert, was the author of Domestic Metalwork, the authoritative book on the subject, which she updated and revised after his death.
The Belinda Gentle metalware gallery at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London is named after her. She was a lifetime student and dealer in antique brass and associated metalwork.
This was purchased from her personal collection in her home in 2005 when she died. See also the gilt eagle on stand for another listing from her collection purchased at that sale.
It is a large and strikingly lovely table box with aesthetic scrolled designs in enamel to the four panels on the hinged top and above each leg.
Size-6.25 inches wide by 4.5 inches deep by 3.5 inches high.
In very good original condition, with a wonderful patina to the bronze, this would be an beautiful decorative accessory, or most useful on a desk or dressing table.
