Antique French Napoleon III Game Jewelry Box with Key
Just back from France is this lovely antique French box with numerous removable inserts. There are four inserts, three rectangular and one round. The box is signed Tostain Paris on the lock. The top of the box is inlaid with a shiny brass cartouche and bands as well as very small pieces of mother of pearl. This gives the box a striking elegance and glamour.

The center of the cartouche has the monogram CD. The box comes with a key and does lock, although with some assistance. The box is in very good condition for its age with some signs of 100 years plus existence: there is a ding in the top near the rim as shown, the gold band surrounding the top has a bit of gilt loss and may have been repaired. The piece that holds in the round dish has had a repair. The hinges are sound and there no cracks or breaks.

To lock the box, hold the top and bottom firmly together and turn the key anti-clockwise. Measurements are: 12 by 9 by 2 tall.
