Dear tigmo,

The value of that box - depending on the condition the object is in -
can be roughly estimated at about $170 to $230.

Judging from the description, I am quite certain that the box in your
possession is of the same kind as one that was offered at the Swiss
art auction house Galerie Koller last year. It was described as

"Box with lid, silver-plated tin, c. 1900. Square shaped, plastically
decorated with a woman's head and water lilies, signed F. Madurell.
Length 25 centimeters. Estimated value 300 to 400 Swiss Francs."

Thank you. You did answer my question which wasn't well worded.  I
should have asked about F. Madurel and the Art Nouveau movement in
Barcelona along with his work with Gaudi.  Thanks very much.  Great
