Fabulous & rare larger antique French Napoleon III marquetry inlaid desk or table box, beautifully richly burled amboyna? & exotic wood veneers framed in brass strip inlays! Most likely a double tea caddy missing its inner wells or an opulent stationery chest with the dividers taken out or missing over the years. Whatever the original purpose, you've found an impressively sized and exquisitely appointed decorative box! A huge brass & exotic wood inlay cartouche on the lid with the engraved monogram "CK". Rare size, rare fab condition and still more rare low price :), don't miss it!
Very good condition! Any interior fittings, tea wells or stationery compartments have been removed and there is a rust colored fabric lining in the base, the inside of the lid is in finished rosewood. Just as you see it with no loss or damage other than a small mark to the right side rim and what appears to be a subtle bubble in the veneer on the lid. See pictures for measurements.
If this item includes any CITES Appendix I materials, all state and federal documentation and certificates required by law for commercial sale, import or export, have been obtained for it. Proper legal paperwork will be included with it at shipment.
