This rare enamel on copper lidded box was likely produced around 1900. The form, style of decoration, and textural effects reference antique Japanese mixed metal and lacquered boxes collected by Louis Comfort Tiffany and his contemporaries.
Each piece of enamel on copper produced by Tiffany's firms was unique. These rare pieces were generally designed by a team of young women known as "Tiffany Girls" who worked in the select Pottery & Enamel Department housed in Tiffany's larger factory complex in Corona, Queens.
The department was known for exercising relative artistic freedom. Their designs were typically botanical in nature.
