In the artistic practice of the repousse technique, indentations are made in the sheet metal to create a relief on the back. This metalworking technique was already known in ancient times.
Rare small tobacco or pill box from the silversmiths of Aurel Knödlel around 1900. Knödlel had a small silversmiths in Schwäbisch-Gmünd, which has remained largely unknown to this day. Most of his works were made in forcing, including this pretty box with rose and leaf decor from the Art Nouveau. Round shape with a cylindrical wall and a slightly curved hinged lid, richly decorated with rose relief. In the center a pearl-rimmed cartridge with a monogram. Very good condition, worth collecting.
