"Large Box Or Jewelry Box In Wood Marquetry From Napoleon III - Late Nineteenth. Brazil"
Very beautiful box in wood marquetry from the Napoleon III period - late 19th century.

The box is rectangular, it rests on four ball feet.
All sides are veneered with different types of wood.

The main face with the keyhole is inlaid with a medallion with laurel palms, vegetable brushes and flowering branches of yellow wood, pink, glass, burl, etc.
The cover presents a magnificent marquetry reproducing the essence of the main face in a superb composition of frames, cartridges, curves and counter-curves decorated with flowers and foliage.
The other three sides are veneered with burl wood and rows of light and dark wood.

The lock plate is engraved: "BR DA CUNHA // RIO DE JANEIRO"

Bernardo Ribeiro Da Cunha was a reseller of luxury items imported from France and England, installed in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in the last quarter of the 19th century.
I found an invoice from his store that I attach to the photos.

Superb object, of very good quality, with an interesting transatlantic route.
