Elegant antique French Napoleon III or Victorian era 12 3/4" jewelry or gloves casket, a glorious box with richly burled veneers, kingwood bordering with ornate reticulated brass & mother of pearl boulle style marquetry inlays & cartouche and opulent tufted red silk or satin lined interior! This is a glove box, or was originally. Some note the size and form as being a documents box, but that's a later designation of use. Certainly you might store any manner of your treasures within, from jewelry to documents or dear letters, or stick with gloves. Most of us display a table top filled with the most gorgeous old 18th and 19th century French boxes and just enjoy the beauty of the craft. Measurements are noted on the photos, but it is 12.75" long.
Very good condition. A few small 'marks' to the veneer but no losses that I can see. The interior is as pristine as they come. Working lock & original hardware but missing the key at the moment (I'll check our extras to see if one will work). See pictures for all measurements.
