Description

Inlaid perfume bottle casket believed to have been made in France during the final quarter of the 1800’s in very fine condition. Measures approximately 5 ¾” x 2 ¾” x 5 ½”. The style of the box is most attractive. Veneered with what is generally regarded as one of the most attractive veneers used on boxes during the 19th century…….amboyna. The colour and grain of the veneer is superb and is used to all aspects of the box exterior. All veneer is original, complete and boasts an unspoilt patina. Nice curved top to the lid. Original inlaid cartouche and escutcheon. It is however the inlaid bands that extend from the back edge of the lid and continues down and across the front of the base section that brings this box ‘alive’. The bands comprise of four very fine metal strips and a combination of tiny strips and triangular shapes of metal, veneer and abalone shell, in excess of 200 pieces all in marvellous condition. The inlays contrast well, the abalone provides a wide variation of colour and there is a nice finishing touch of the etched filled veneer where the bands turn to extend across the width of the box. The effect of the bands is to emphasise both height and width. The lid closes perfectly square. Original hinges and lock with two replacement working keys supplied. The box interior is equally impressive. Original wooden panels with the original white finish with blue velvet panel to the lid and sections for the three matching bottles. The bottles are all in very good condition and complete with the original stoppers. Fortunately none of the stoppers are stuck as is quite often the case. Clearly a nice quality item in a condition to please, one that displays well and of a design that begs to be admired and to be opened by all who see it.
