Oh, the flutters we felt when we found this antique beauty at a recent flea market! The snuff box (or match safe, depending on who you ask) is carved of beautifully-banded agate, the reddish-brown hues of the stone lending a sumptuous richness to the case. Gilt metal fittings also add luxe to the design, and a hinged lid shows off a carved jewel of agate in its crenellated setting. The box becomes a striking pendant at front center of African glass bead strands, themselves displaying easy glamour in vibrant pattern and hue. Such a marvelous mix, and a gilt copper clasp is at once glamourous and playful, perfectly at home here. Measures 18" in length.
