This is a sweet little box, made for saving coins. It originates from Paris and dates from 1900-1910.

It is made of cherry wood, with an inlay of maple. The hand-cut central medallion at the top center is intricate, with delicate flowers and leaves "caisse d'epargne" (savings box). There is a very fine maple wood inlay of straight, interesting lines framing the medallion. A slot at the front receives the coins/bills. There is a working lock and key (the ornamental front piece is not longer present).

The inside is lined with red paper. The back of the box has two small holes which we are not sure what the purpose was/is. The box measures: 3" tall, 5 1/4" wide and 3 3/8" deep. The interior measures: 1 3/8" deep. The box is in good antique condition, with normal wear for age. The marquetry is in excellent condition, the lock working.

It would be a lovely gift for someone saving for a French trip or would make a delightful little accent on a silver dresser tray.
