How precious is this box? The central image is a beautiful pastoral scene featuring a Georgian woman and child petting a donkey while another child plays in the foreground and a man works in the background. Two floral appliques are on either side. The the box is also nicely trimmed in a lightly metallic taupe. The lock is beautiful. The front plate is mother of pearl with absolutely no chips. Even more impressive, it includes the original key! Crafted in France during the early 1800s, this lovely box has some wear from years is love. All wear is pictured, and includes a torn corner, shredding to the bottom, and staining to the lining. I also believe the scene in the center had a decorative framing which has since come unglued. As antique and vintage pieces, there will of course be some wear from the years of love. All items are described as clearly and accurately as possible. I’m an avid collector, but not an expert.
