Fabulous & rare antique French leather clad desk or stationery box/casket with domed top, tooled & gilt Greek key motif decoration, studded accents & carved mother of pearl or nacre escutcheon! Nearly immaculate, just missing a few studs or possibly a cartouche from the top of the lid though you can hardly tell! A wonderful desk or table top decorative piece and you simply can't beat the price!
Very good condition! As stated, there are a few small studs missing from the lid but I'm sure I have a few extra (antique and from another box) and I'll include them for the new owner. The two inner partitions are replacements but with curved centers and lining as the originals would have had. See pictures for measurements.
