Lovingly collected from the markets of France, we are thrilled to share with you this exquisite Antique Belle Époque Souvenir Jewelry Box. This extraordinary box is wondrously special for sure; unique with its own journeyed story. Dating from the early 1900s, this nostalgic and romantic box served as a lasting memory from an undoubtedly magical sojourn to the beautiful city of Vannes in the Brittany region of northwest France. 

Hand-crafted using thick beveled glass and a gilt metal frame embellished with decorative flourishes, the interior of the box is lined in a gently faded dove grey fabric intended to safely hold the most precious, favored piece of jewelry. The lid is decorated with a hand-tinted image of an historic bronze statue memorializing 17th century French novelist and playwright Alain-René Lesage who was born nearby. The statue is set along a tree-lined promenade known as "La Rabine" located near the port of Vannes.  In the background, the historic town is seen with the Cathédrale Saint-Pierre de Vannes just visible in the distance. Thin strips of lustrous mother-of-pearl add dimension and sheen. 

Sure to infuse your home with all the beauty and charm of turn-of-the-century Brittany, this enchanting find promises to lovingly hold your most treasured jewelry in elegant antique French fashion.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In good antique condition with wear to fabric that is commensurate with the age of the box. 2.25"H x 3" x 2.25".
