France, 19th century, made of wood and brass. Height : 5" ; width : 13" ; depth : 9 1/4.
Condition : need some restorations on the wood mouldings I have 3 of them detached, last pic. , really nice copper repousse decor on top : religious scene, really big for a box ; it is rare to find one of this size, with the original key, incrusted brass ornaments and stones? On each side of the key hole.My name is Greg, I'm a French guy who had business in Charlotte NC for 3 years. Unfortunately, I had to move back to France because of a slow activity. I fell in love with the US, particulary Charlotte! So now my only goal is to return to Charlotte, and for that I want to export French furnitures and antiques there! This idea came because of my love for wood and history.
It is a great area to find valuable furnitures and smalls because of the proximity of wealthy ski resorts like Megève and Chamonix Mont-Blanc. It is also close to Geneva (switzerland), about 45minutes by car. The Geneva area is one of the richest in Europe due to finance and whatchmaking. Italy's not to far as well, 40 minutes. So when you're living and picking in this kind of environment, It is not rare to come across real pieces of art and history.
