Powder Box with moving image of theatrical show in lid
The picture on the lid of the powder box, dating from the "époque romantique" shows a young woman watching an optical show on a small theatre. Made of decorated cardboard and paper, so hard to find in good condition due to its fragility.
When the lid is turned, various different scenes appear in the opening of the theatre.
