Hand cast pewter and hand painted enamel hinged box.
The lighthouse has long been a symbol of welcoming and safety, used for centuries to guide sailors home. This charming box is hand cast from pewter and then gold plated. The elegant enamels are applied and the box is fired in a kiln, creating a glass-like finish. The box is then accented with Austrian lead crystal jewels. Beautifully crafted in the style of the famous Russian Imperial court jeweler, Carl Fabergé.3 1/4" Tall.
