No reproduction without prior written consent. We’ll be sending out sale notices and special deals to our’Favorites’ customers. Fine large antique French Napoleon III era 11 5/8 wide writing or work box, a marvelous chest in ebony finished veneers with brass inlay, ornate scrolling boulle inlaid lid & finished rosewood interior! A writing or work box, the lid opens and the front panel is hinged so folds down completely to allow access to the contents. It looks like the rear is fitted to hold inkwells, no wells unfortunately but could be replaced if you wish. It could also have held old French eglomise topped perfume or cologne bottles as a vanity chest. A beautiful decorative piece in any event. We just love these old French boxes, have several spots in our own homes to display them and we always keep favorites on our coffee table (until the inevitably sell, that is). This one appear to have a clear coat over the exterior and covering all of the brass boulle inlays. The brass has tarnished a little under the clear finish and we havent polished it but there are no missing inlays that I can see. One or two small veneer imperfections, as you would expect with a piece of its age. There also is one thin brass string or strip on the left side of the front panel that looks as though it has come out and been re-glued in with minor veneer damage there. The interior is in finished rosewood, has spaces in the back for inkwells but there are currently no wells. Working lock with old skeleton key. See pictures for all measurements.
