French wooden miniature ladies jewel box. Coffre in oak, chip-carved
on all five sides making for an exceptional box. Boarded together
with tiny clout nails, the interior reveals a date of 1794. The lid
operates on a doweled pivot system which is run in from the underside
lid cleats. Has damage from normal wear in the right rear foot. A
rare piece of art.
Size: H.4in., L.6in, and depth 3.5in. ( 10cm by 15cm by 8.9cm).
