A stunning original French antique. This fabulous old box has a feel of true quality about it.

It is made either of papier mache or else a very light wood and is intricately decorated in a wonderful lattice work pattern.

The domed lid is topped with a metal handle and there are finely moulded decorations at each corner.

The inside is lined with a marble effect paper as is the base.

We think that at one time in the past there may have been tiny feet at each corner because there are corresponding holes.

There is a tiny bit of damage to the corner near the lid on the right hand side of the box as you look from the front, this I have tried to highlight in the photos.

The box may have been used for jewelry or perhaps as a keepsake box to sit atop a ladies bonheur du jour.

There is no key but the box snaps shut nicely and opens very easily.

A beautiful piece of high quality French craftmanship that would grace any home today, and bring a touch of class to any interior.
