Absolutely exquisite & RARE antique French Charles X era 15" wide curiosity/curiosities cabinet, jewelry chest or cabinet with ornate boulle inlay including a royal crown, cabinet style front doors, inner drawers with jeweled pulls and a hidden compartment of three drawers behind mirrored doors! Isn't this one magnificent! I would definitely not be surprised to see such a piece on display in the Napoleon III chambers in the Louvre. It does have some flaws, as you can see in the images, it's missing a few drawers and some loss of the brass or boulle inlays but the exterior is really superb. The only one of its kind that we've ever had the pleasure to find and offer. Just in from France, don't miss it!
Very good condition, as noted. As you can see in the images, there are a few original inner drawers missing and some of the boulle inlay on the drawer fronts and framing is missing or damages. Some slight boulle loss on the front cabinet doors but the exterior of the box is really superb. Worth some restoration if you decide to but it's a rare treasure just as it is. See pictures for all measurements.
