Circa 1700 table top coffer for writing materials.
1700
Circa 1700 wooden table top box or "Coffret" . Wood with paper cover painted and varnished to resemble tortoiseshell. Original lock and plate and catches. The hinges are later replacements. Internally the box lid has been fitted with tapes for holding writing materials, and the box itself is lined with (I think) green silk. Approx 21 cm wide X 13.5 cm deep X 8.5 cm tall at the top of the domed lid. On the base of the box is some manuscript in ink which we have so far failed to decipher. We think that the box is continental in origin. A most interesting little box.
condition: Very Good
