Description

Antique early-19th Century Swiss 18k gold snuff box, the lid set with a marquise shaped panel delicately hand painted depicting holly mother and child surrounded by an engraved laurel leaf boarder and a large boarder with ovals and arrows. Engine-turned decoration on lid, sides and base, applied with dark blue translucent enamel, within light blue boarders and navettes. Hallmarked with crowned maker mark GGB (Guidon, Gide & Blondet fils, Geneva, 1801-1804), enamelled by Abraham Lissignol.

The snuff box is stamped by the firm of Guidon, Gide et Blondet who were active in Geneva between 1801 and 1804. The formal closure of the Geneva firm of Guidon, Rémond, Gide & Co. on 1 January 1801 was followed by a division of the partners who, on the same day, opened on the one hand, Rémond, Lamy & Co. and on the other, Guidon Gide & Blondet.
