Large gold and black enamel hinged card case with rectangular shape and rounded edges. The gold is very finely chiseled in a geometric pattern on the edges of the box. It surrounds a central motif of herbaceous scrolls, reed stems with their feathers. The center of the oval box in black enamel is decorated with symmetrical initials in gold and pink diamonds. The base of the box has the same geometric patterns but is centered on a five-pointed star edged with gold and set with rose cut diamonds all on a black enamel base. The interior of the box opens and we discover on both sides a beautiful crest with stylized vegeteaux.
