This rare French hand crafted marquetry hexagonal trinket box is made from many exotic woods, featuring a cherub riding on a goat and holding an arrow ready to fire, and as one knows where his arrow lands someone will fall in love.
All the main body corners of the box are made with the old technique of tying the corners together with a thin slice of wood. I think this old technique is called a "biscuit" (see inner photo). It has a satinwood built in liner.
The box is in very good condition.
Measures; 3.75 inches x 2. 25 inches and 1 1/8 inch tall
