Important Box In Secrets En Marquetrie De Palissandre, Early 19th Century
Superb and rare secret box in palisander marquetry in veneer and standing wood. Rectangular in shape, the wood section is important, making it a rather heavy box. It is covered with a beautiful butterfly marquetry and slices of the sides by a standing wooden marquetry. Inside, a large storage space with, very rare thing, secret compartments. Two hatches in the lid reveal a space and on the sides of the body, 4 small compartments that must be extracted with a metal rod (not supplied) that opens with a small slipper.
