Description

Inlaid rosewood box, made in France during the mid 1800’s in excellent condition. No missing or replaced veneer. Unspoilt patina. Intricate floral Mother of Pear inlays, all original, complete and in perfect condition. Original top handle, hinges and lock. The key is I believe a replacement and does operate the lock, though it is a little tight and can be a little difficult to grip such a tiny key!! The lid closes perfectly square. Original wood lined panels in superb condition. It is difficult to state with certainty the purpose of the box…..Perhaps to accommodate fine quality sewing/tapestry accessories or a manicure set akin to Palais Royal items. Attractive style with the curves to both the base section and the lid. I recently saw an identical box, void of accessories prIced at $800 - $1000 !!
Unpacked weight 0.3Kg
