Very fine French made powder jar with a Miniature Portrait This powder jar was made in France c1920 for Stern Brothers of New York. This box is gorgeous… And in wonderful condition for its age. It is made of bronze with a gold finish and has some weight to it. The jar is 3 inches tall and 3 inches wide. It features a signed hand painted portrait under glass on the lid. The portrait is framed with a raised leaf design. The top and sides are very ornate. The top has a background of raised ultra small dots… There are four what looks like butterflies to me. They are inset into the background. With teal color enamel guilloche wings. The wings are outlined with fancy raised bronze. There are also 4 tiny flowers between the butterflies. The top has a border of raised twisted ribbon around a rod that frames the top. The sides are very ornate with different types of flowers and swags of floral garland. There is a thick and clear liner jar inside the bottom. It is perfectly clean and fits perfectly… I believe it to be original to the jar. The bottom is stamped Stern Brothers New York France CONDITION: Excellent Antique Condition I find no dings, dents, chips, cracks or damage. The hinge is very strong and works fine, no wiggles. The front opens with a tab. The top and bottom all line up perfectly with no gaps. THINGS TO POINT OUT: The gold gilt finish is a little darker on the top due to the patina and some dust that is normal and expected. Can be seen best in picture #10.
