668 Superb Antique French Kingwood Casket dating to Circa 1870

 


The Term Museum Quality is often over used by some of my colleagues in the Antique World but This Large French Kingwood Casket made Circa 1870 is quite simply a Masterclass in Construction, design and yes ... Museum Quality. The Box although not stamped has the hallmarks of one of the top makers in Paris - Tahan. The Kingwood is of the best quality and the chequered veneering and design of the veneer is breath taking. The Box is mounted with Oromlu mounts wich are crisply crafted and the interior is in stained Birds Eye Maple all raised on 4 Ormolu feet. The original key and working lock are present.
