C19th tortoishell box inlaid with gold and silver



Item Ref


A good C19th French box made of tortoishell and the hinged top inlaid with gold and silver to an elaborate bordered panel, the central motif being a basket of overflowing flowers.
Width 12.5 cms
Depth 8.5 cms
Height 4.5 cms
Tiny losses from the top inlay including .5 cms loss on the top right corner, the front has a very slight warp on its joint with the base, it's missing its push button, and the back has an old restored crack on the back of the box. Sounds a lot but the box looks amazing and is beautifully made.
