Charming antique Victorian to Edwardian era Black Forest style hand carved 9 3/4" jewelry casket, a wonderful decorative box with figural medallions in deep carved bas relief, lion's paw feet & working lock with key! An interesting piece, direct to us from France though the origins may be other than the Black Forest area, the figures and style have more of an African or Indian look to them. Of course, Empire expansion would have increased European trade in those areas and hence, these carved pieces often had their influences from the wildly popular carved works of the Swiss Black Forest region. A lovely decorative piece though and it does have a working lock with key.
Very good condition. Possibly a small nip or two but I see no larger chips, damage or repairs to note. The interior does have a newer peach colored silk or satin lining. Working lock & key. See pictures for measurements.
