About

Geometric marquetry pattern and faithful interpretation of the Louis XVI style characterize this 19th-century French jewelry box. Enfolded in intricate marquetry featuring diamond pattern, the casket is mounted in gilt bronze, chiseled with delicate acanthus, palmettes and foliated interlace. Inside, the blue velvet-lined interior display a spacious storage compartment to hold jewellery. The box rests on four scrolled feet accented with foliage. 19th century jewelry boxes are among the most exquisite and highly collectible antiques today. Circa :1850 Dimension: W: 13.8 in, D: 10.2in, H: 5.7in. Dimension: L: 35cm, P: 26cm, H: 14.5cm. From the middle of the 18th century, taste was dominated by the classical ideal, based on the observation of Antiquity. In decorative arts, this was characterized by the harmony of proportions based on mathematics and geometry, both present in the shape of furniture pieces and marquetry decorations. The geometric marquetry - rhombuses, stars, cubes, squares, octagonal or circular patterns - marked the Transition and Louis XVI styles. Louis XVI style was particularly appreciated under Napoleon III. The geometrical marquetry that decorates our jewelry box is a perfect example.
