A scarce box from the famed French jeweller Augis for Alphonse Augis' famous "Medaille d'Amour". Interior box reads:
"“Car, vois-tu, chaque jour je t'aime davantage,Aujourd'hui plus qu'hier et bien moins que demain. - Rosemonde Gérard Rostand"(For, you see, each day I love you more,Today more than yesterday and less than tomorrow.)
- From Rosemonde Gérard's famous couplet from her poem, “Les Vieux” (“The Old Ones”), which she wrote to her husband in 1889.
This box measures 2 1/8" tall x 1 3/4" wide. It shows some light soiling commensurate with age and use.
