Silver gilt singing bird snuff box with enamel scenes by Brugier c. 1840

The top of the box is decorated in typical Brugier style with shades of blue and green opaque cloisonné enamel flowers and tendrils, framing fine polychrome enamel plaques of peonies, pansies, snow drops and forget-me-not, set left and right of a central enamel idyllic Swiss Alp scene. The case edges are richly engraved with detailed engine-turning and floral patterns. Upon activating a slide located at the front, the central enamel plaque lifts up to reveal a singing bird automaton.
