When I initially bought this in France, I didn’t even realize it had a secret drawer for jewelry. It’s a fabulous and rather unique gloves and jewelry box, probably initially for a gentleman (ladies’ boxes usually were silk velvet or silk satin lined), and its ripple border carving helps us date it to the period known in France as Charles X, c. Boulle inlays up top include flowers of mother of pearl, and a gorgeous marquetry of brass, accented with brass strapping. The cartouche area has no monogram yet, so you could still truly make it your own in that way. The old lock still works fine with the old original key in place rare! The lock plate does not have a signature, but it is certainly of quality enough, we’d half expect it to be engraved “TAHAN”, or “Vervelle”, or P. Sormani”, or “Alph Giroux, all top Paris makers of such goods in the 1800s. Very good to excellent condition throughout. I see no chips on that carved ripple rim and trim. There are no splits or cracks. The inlays are all in place, with just a little disruption to one spot on the brass stringing (right front side, top). The remaining and opulently designed and crafted brass inlays and mother of pearl flowers, addending remain fully intact and in place. Box is 11″ long, 4.5″ wide, and 3.75 tall, closed.
