Correspondence box, Napoleon III period, opening in the upper part by a small flap equipped with a functional lock and its original clover head key. It reveals three small compartments. The central one has a removable lid with a pull knob, which reveals an authentic Porte Plume. On either side, two square spaces still contain their original inkwells.
A second flap, inclined and operable only when the first is open, contains a work space in Rosewood. This last one is covered with a current Leather of Green color, embellished on its circumference of Gilded friezes and on hard bottom. It is provided with a tab in the upper part that will reveal a last storage compartment, made of Rosewood.
We will appreciate the pretty fronts of these two flaps, each decorated with a Rosewood decoration with symmetrical designs, on a precious Rio Rosewood background recognizable by the fineness of its lines. These two Marqueteries are underlined by a delicate brass fillet forming a Wave surround. Finally, these two openings are framed on their edges of a quarter round brass rod.
The elegance of this small writing case, the finesse of its design, and its perfect state of preservation despite its 150 years of travels and correspondence.
