Absolutely gorgeous & rare 19th century French Charles X to Napoleon III era rosewood box or casket, elegant brass inlay with ornate engraved cartouche and boasting a complete 12 piece vermeil or 18k gold washed silver spoon set! WOW, a beautiful box AND stunning set of silver flatware! All original, the box's cartouche and handles of each spoon bear the same ornate monogram, 'AT' I believe. Guilloche style engraved decoration throughout and old .800/1000 (nearly sterling) silver marks (80% or better pure silver so just under the .925 standard for "sterling" silver). The diamond shaped maker mark is that of Jean GRANVIGNE or Granvigne (Tetard successor) 30 rue des Gravilliers, PARIS circa late 1868 to turn of the century. All in superb displayable, perfectly usable condition!

Very good-excellent condition! The only flaw with the entire set is that the outer brass string or strip inlay is a bit raised, due to the slight shrinking of the wood veneers but, of course, the brass did not shrink along with it. No missing inlay, no damage to the interior linings, fittings or spoons! The box is really fabulous, all original lock and hardware but missing the old skeleton key. GORGEOUS! See pictures for measurements.
