Rare antique French Napoleon III era Palais Royal satinwood sewing casket or etui, beautiful serpentine shaping and unique 'Souvenir' pique or studded onlay! Most of us dealers and/or collectors have seen this type of casket, definitely Palais Royal and, if lucky, they'll still have the inner fitted tray and opulent carved ivory sewing implements inside. This one is missing the tools, no tray and the inside has been relined but what a marvelous decorative box! Priced to move so, don't miss it!
Very good condition! A very minor flaw or two, a tiny nip to a corner but in overall wonderful shape! No missing stud or pique inlays, the original large turned feet and top handle are there. No key, unfortunately, but the lock, etc. are intact. See pictures for measurements.
