Rare to find early 1800’s Palais Royal perfume casket in VERY fine condition. Measures approximately 7” x 3” x 4”. Veneered with thick rosewood......all original and complete. The photographs do not do this box justice. The box has not been devalued by stripping back and refinishing......Apart from destroying that which has taken so many years to create why refinish something which is in such marvellous condition!! All edges are keen and remarkably all of the cut steel facetted pins are present!!!It is perhaps difficult to see from the photographs but each one of these steel pins has a beautifully cut diamond cut that reflects the light in a subtle manner. The original red leather and velvet lining is still present with no tears. The containers are replacement, are a matching set and are all in perfect condition. The lid does lock securely with the containers inside but obviously with patience containers more in keeping could be found. Original hinges and lock with a later working key supplied.Palais Royale boxes are considered to be among the elite of all French antique boxes and are becoming increasingly difficult to obtain as more and more collectors become aware of their status. Fine quality box and a very sound investment piece
