French Art Deco Marble, Nickel and Shagreen Puzzle Box

About

This magnificent box is truly an object of Virtue. Made from marble and accented with nickel and shagreen, this puzzle box has a secret opening when pressing upon the correct circle. It releases a lever and the top shoots open. To close, one must only press the lid back down, and it will lock in place. This box was jeweler-made in France, a custom commission. This box is what people reminisce upon when they think of the objects of Virtue that were made around Paris during the 1940s.
