A small granite box with gilt brass rims, early 19th c.
A small box of the best quality. It is made of a Porphyry type hard stone called granitell. The pattern of the stone is lively. To cut this kind of stone took a great deal of time and skill. The box is mounted with rims of gilt brass which was typical of this period. The box is in perfect condition which is rare. Since this stone is so hard it is easy to chip or crack.
Very few boxes exist that are not chipped or damaged.
