An antique French Art Deco rectangular box, actually of ivory, but stained to resemble tortoiseshell, of Chinoiserie inspiration. The cover is engraved and gilded with flower-pots between inlaid coral and mother-of-pearl discs and applied with white gold bands set at the ends with rose-cut diamonds; the clasp similarly set. The gold hinge is stamped with French 18ct control marks, and the maker’s mark of Strauss, Allard & Meyer, Paris. This maker’s mark has been found on boxes signed by Cartier, Boucheron and other French makers. As box-making is rather specialised, it is quite normal that their manufacture should be contracted-out to specialists; the same applied to much jewellery signed by the major houses. It is in excellent condition.
