Today we are excited to offer a very handsome, big, AND heavy bronze treasure box! This fabulous piece in intricately and expertly cast and detailed in beautiful golden bronze. The level of detail is quite phenomenal. The box is cast in a Renaissance-style with many allegorical motifs of mythical animals, such as dragons, lions, and peacocks, which are interspersed between geometrical Renaissance design motifs and medallions. The box has a heft and impressive presence. The interior is lined in virgin wood. The box has a lock; although the original key is long gone, with some research (and luck!) you should be able to get a replacement, probably right here on eBay! Simply marked on the bottom “Made in Belgium”, this piece is no doubt the creation of a fine and expert artisan. The level of craftsmanship is of equal level to that of renowned German firm Erhard & Söhne, which also produced wonderfully detailed bronze boxes. The box presents beautifully and is in very good antique condition, with very minor shelf wear from being on display. The bottom insert plate is slightly loose. This fine and elegant box will be the perfect objet d’art that will add elegance old European grandeur to any room in your home or business! Fresh to the market…A special find for a special buyer!
