Extraordinary 19th-C French Inlaid Wood Game Box 400 Mother Pearl Counters Poker
Presented for your consideration is a rare antique 19th c. French wooden game chest with 400 mother of pearl tokens/counters/chips. This exquisite chest features elaborate inlays of brass and mother of pearl crest, and is veneered with burr walnut, rosewood, ebony, plum pudding mahogany, and framed with bronze inlay edge. The chest measures 12.2″ wide x 2.4″ high x 9.4 across. Quite likely a set such as this was used in the play of Quadrille, an avocation often enjoyed in the more noble of French salons. This unique and extraordinary chest is in very good vintage condition. The lock mechanism is also in very good vintage condition, but we do not have the key. The interior of the box contains the original five smaller boxes, all containing the mother of pearl counters and all of which are in very good vintage condition. There are three slats of wood for partitioning missing from the interior. The counters are in very fine condition. Please carefully view the photos for more details as they inform the description. We appreciate you taking a moment to consider this extraordinary set.
