The decorative brass lid panel has a Knight in armor holding a shield and sword and the side panels have stylized natural motifs in medieval or byzantine style.
Daguet's atelier in Paris was situated right above Siegfried Bing's boutique 'L'Art Nouveau', which was an instrumental proponent of the Art Nouveau style. Daguet created and provided a large amount of pieces for Bing's boutique.
This box is marked with initials and a number 2 on the top lid and is in remarkable antique condition, with a desirable natural patina to the metal surfaces.
