A scarce example of fine Boulle work craftsmanship which was carried out by only the most skilled artisans of that era - circa 1870.  It has some professional restorative work carried out on the inlay - tortoiseshell is an extremely vulnerable material and many pieces of this type don't survive at all.  The silk velvet line interior is all original and in beautiful condition.  It also features the original gilded bronze ormolu mounts which makes it a striking piece with the contrasting gloss black lacquer finish.
