19c French Brown Onyx & Ormolu Table Box

A wonderful Napoleon III ormolu mounted brown onyx table box, dating to the late 19th century. The heavy table box is composed of a rare grain of onyx, with rich browns, whites, and blondes that closely resembles banded agate. The gilt ormolu fittings surround the inner lip of the box, and the hinges open and close smoothly.

Condition: Good condition. There is a hairline to one corner (as seen in pics), but it is completely stable and secure. The gilt ormolu fittings have been preserved in a nice state, and the polished onyx has a gleaming shine.

Measurements: 4 1/4 in. square x 2 1/4 in. high (10.5 cm square x 5.5 cm high)
