Plique A Jour Enamel Heart Trinket ~ This exquisite trinket box has a row of 3 leaf clovers all over the sides and a single flower dropping a petal on the lid. The craftsmanship is outstanding, the design is unique and the rare colors are just amazing. Like a stained glass window, it shines bright translucent when the light passes through.

The plique a jour work is highly intricate, with dotted mil-grain bezels and such little pieces placed perfectly. The clovers are deep bluish/green with lime green backgrounds and dark blue highlights all along the borders. The flower has 15 petals that fade from pink to white and it finishes with yellow and red in the center.

The box is silver and stamped 900 on the inside base. The inside chamber is cleanly covered with pure gold leaf that illuminates beautifully when the box is opened. The hinges on the back work perfectly and the heart lid opens and closes with precision. The box measures 1 1/2" long x 1 3/8" wide x 3/4" deep and it weighs 25.70g.

The box is in excellent original condition with a wonderful patina. There is no damage to any of the enamel, no cracks or crazing and no missing or replaced pieces. The silver shows slight wear commensurate with age with some scratching on the bottom and there are no dents or dings anywhere on the box or the open framework.

You will love this charming and romantic treasure!
