Seller: ri2u (3,689) 100%, Location: Pawtucket, Rhode Island, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 183506961162 Today we are delighted to offer for sale a handsome and quite wonderful antique 19th century French inlaid wood box! This exquisitely crafted, octagon-shaped box features masterfully executed inlaid wood marquetry designs. The box is in lovely condition for its age, with expected imperfections such as minor losses to the veneer at some corners, consistent with true antiquity. Note that the lid has become slightly bowed over the century or so since it was formed, so there is a small gap on the sides between the lid and the base when item is closed. Not very noticeable or objectionable but mentioned for accuracy. Lock appears viable, but is without its key.

This exquisitely crafted, octagon-shaped box features masterfully executed inlaid wood marquetry designs. The box is veneered in beautiful contrasting exotic wood inlays, in an André Charles Boulle-style. Boulle was the most famous French cabinetmaker and the preeminent artist in the field of marquetry, also known as "Inlay", in the late 17th and early 18th century. The box's design features intricately mirrored griffins and floral vine patterns around the edges, as well as a similar scroll pattern on the top of the box, with what appears to be a circle of radiating spearheads in the center. There is a inlaid circle on the top above the lock which was apparently intended to be monogrammed, however it remains blank... perhaps awaiting your initials? The box is in lovely condition for its age, with expected imperfections such as minor losses to the veneer at some corners, consistent with true antiquity. Note that the lid has become slightly bowed over the century or so since it was formed, so there is a small gap on the sides between the lid and the base when item is closed. Not very noticeable or objectionable but mentioned for accuracy. Lock appears viable, but is without its key. This refined and elegant objet d'art box will be the perfect accent to bring old-world refinement and grandeur to any interior! A great conversation piece...Fresh to the market!
