à L'ami

French for: A Friend. This is a French horn Georgian era (1770-1780) trinket box lid. Under the 14K rimmed glass cover is a beaded design made from tiny natural seed pearls on top of dark blue enamel. à L'ami is written on a small rectangle of ivory. Some of the pearls and gold braid have become dislodged but it is still breathtaking. Soon to be one of my newest assemblage creations.
