Gorgeous antique French Louis Philippe to Napoleon III era 10.5" desk, document or gloves casket, a stunning box with ornate boulle inlay & finished maple interior! Isn't this one beautiful! It does appear to have a bit of exterior restoration or 'clean-up' but the boulle inlay is all exquisite and fully intact and includes ornate scrolling brass, natural shell and even mother of pearl accents! The lid and front panels open completely to that opulent interior, fully finished with a burled or birdseye mable veneers. Exceptional and one of two great old French boulle boxes that we're adding this week so be sure to browse some while you're with us. Thanks!
Very good to excellent condition! As noted above, there does appear to be a bit of restoration to this one that includes a slightly satin exterior finish and possibly the two vertical brass edge segments on the back sides. Working lock & key. See pictures for measurements.
