This exceptional example is modelled in an unusual, almost square, form with a cast foliate frame on the cover and the base. Both the base, sides and cover are engraved with engine turned designs and the base displays a vacant rectangular cartouche. The cover is most unusually set with a very rare shaded agate panel, the first time we have seen this type of agate inset into the top of a vinaigrette. The agate is also surrounded by a cast foliate frame. The interior displays very fine original gilding and a grille pierced and engraved with pluming feathery scrolls. This fine example is contained within a silk and velvet lined, green leather case. This is the third time we have offered this rare box for sale over the years and we are very pleased to do so again.

Length: 1.5 inches, 3.75cm.
