One of a kind memory box.  Repoussé and chased copper metalwork lid and leather bottom, and I added wooden feet to raise it up.  Photo album made by Peartree & Co. , and signed by the artist and entitled the  "Knight of the Swan". According to legend, the son of Perceval  is summoned from the temple of the Holy Grail at Montsalvatsch and borne in a swanboat to Antwerp. He saves Princess Elsa of Brabant from Frederick of Telramund who wants to marry her against her wishes. Lohengrin will marry Elsa if she does not ask what his name is; but she does, and the swan‐boat carries him back to the Grail castle. The story is the subject of Wagner's opera "Helias and Lohengrin" (1850). Waterproofed.   Measures 12.25" l x 10" w x 4.25" d
