Ca. 1800, wood/paper, good condition

Schmetterling Metamorphosen. Metamorphoses de papillon. Papilio Metamorphoses.

No place, publisher, or date [but ca. 1800]. Small wooden box (12.9 x 10.1 x 1.9 cm) with triangular cards, four of them together each forming an image of a colourful butterfly. Pictorial hand-coloured cover.

Very rare and interesting puzzle or, perhaps, game as each of the matching cards bears the same number (running from 9-16).

Among the butterflies depicted we find colourful species such as Papillio machaon, Vanessa xanthomelas, and Sphinx atropos, all with their fodder plant.

The box a bit soiled, lacking card 11 left, and 14 top, otherwise a very nice item.

No information on this item could be found anywhere. It must be very rare.
