In superb condition, really, this c.1870-1920 French box is mahogany, I'm pretty sure and trimmed out with excellent and delicate dore bronze appliqués in the French Empire manner. Beautifully trimmed, not a single bit of all that appliqués is missing, or loose. Very fine sculpting to the casts, as well. I'm sure it was a jewelry box initially, but it is perfect as a cigar server or desktop box, as well. Full measurements noted on the photos.

Very good to excellent condition for age and type. Finer quality than most of similar aesthetic, rather opulent appliqués and edge trim. There is a trim piece which looks like an escutcheon for a lock/key, but the box was not made with lock. No warp, and it closed snug and evenly. Very nice!

Shipping and Handling Policy:

You are very important! Our fine inventory is very important. And your ranking of our performance is also very important! We wish to keep our 4.9 - 5 star ratings in all categories.

We always insure our items BUT, more importantly, pack them extremely well knowing that most are not replaceable. Again, damage in transit, while rare in our experience, is due to the postal agency handling and not caused by Antiques & Uncommon Treasure. Please remember that when leaving DSR ratings. Thanks!


Our shipping days are Tuesday and Friday, paid items will be shipped on the first shipping day after payment is received (except when special circumstances exist). We prefer to use USPS whenever possible, and require all packages to be insured. If you prefer another method of shipment, please mention it.
