Sweet vintage Florentia hinged lidded box featuring Italian Renaissance artist Sandro Botticelli's 1483 work, "Madonna of the Book". The central image on the lid depicts Mary seated with the child Jesus ensconced in her lap. The picture is framed by a scrolled floral design set within a border of small circles. The box itself is finished in a muted gold color with a thick cream stripe around its base, and is further decorated on the outside with a series of carved shapes.

The box, measuring approximately 3.25" square, is in good vintage condition. The lid is firmly attached to the body of the box and the hinges themselves operate easily. The exterior of the piece has no major damage but does show the scuffs and nicks one would expect to find on a vintage item. The only notable area of paint loss is near the rear of the box and is visible in photo three - please enlarge the photo to see it more clearly. The overall worn decorative effect is very pleasing and does not detract from the functionality of the box, but rather enhances its vintage appeal.

The base of the piece bears the original green foil label stating the name of its manufacturer, "Florentia", along with the words "A DECORATIVE CRAFT HAND MADE IN ITALY". This box would be a great vintage decorative accent for your home, or could make a thoughtful gift for a fan of Renaissance Italian art. Oggetto bello!
