Rare Antique French Napoleon III Plant Box or Jardiniere, Burled with Mother of Pearl Accents. All items and photos are the express property of Antiques & Uncommon Treasure. No reproduction without prior written consent. We’ll be sending out sale notices and special deals to our’Favorites’ customers. Absolutely stunning & very rare antique 19th century French Napoleon III era Palais Royal style desk, formal dining table or fireplace mantel top decorative jardiniere or plant box with richly burled exterior veneers, ebonized cabriole style legs and opulent brass & carved mother of pearl appliqué decoration! We’ve had only a few other pieces in this highly decorated style, all boxes though and a bit larger, some with turquoise opaline’jewels’ to boot but this little treasure will hold its own amongst your best! About the size of a Georgian era single well tea caddy, all four sides in richly burled walnut veneers with solid mother of pearl cabochons & carved accents. Small but wonderfully sized as a desk or writing table top decorative piece or even as a formal dining table accent. No maker’s markings on it but I wouldn’t be surprised to find this one a work of one of the more prominent French manufacturers. There is an old, somewhat faded paper retailer’s label on the bottom that reads “Fouchard Fils, Parfumerie, Ganterie”. We’re also adding a matched pair, similarly sized & decorated plant boxes this week so be sure to browse some while you’re with us. A few flaws to note, the most obvious is that two of the shaped legs appear to be restorations, in solid carved wood but not as finely done as the original two. A few small veneer chips or imperfections and there are one or two of the small mother of pearl accents missing from the legs. It does have the original inner tin liner with finger ring side handles.
