VERVELLE Antique French 15" Campaign Style Sewing, Jewelry & Valuables Chest, Boulle Inlay
Very good condition. It arrived with broken feet so the turned wood feet are not original but antique, salvaged from another box of the same age. Also, the lower front of the right side had a small section of veneer broken (visible in the images). I did notice that one or two of the brass strip inlays on the sides were replacements. No missing inlays, as you can see. The interior is in great shape with just a few missing sewing or vanity tools, the scissors and likely the bone pieces are not original but it does have a 2-tone silver & vermeil stiletto and thimble which are surely original. There is a side-to-side split in the bottom of the upper drawer and notches on the insides of the lower drawer meaning it's missing the smaller partitions seen in its partner. There are only very slight evidences of age otherwise, and all the hardware and inlays (inside and out) speak to the exquisite quality of workmanship. "Vervelle Aine" signature on the lock bar, working lock & key. As seen, the piece weighs 8 lbs, 10 ounces (3.9 kg). See pictures for all measurements..
