These decorations of mythological inspiration are centered around Cupid. Five sides enrich this exceptional box. Beautiful exterior, nevertheless the lid is not in the axis of the lock: the wooden structure has worked and requires a cabinet making intervention so that the lid is in the axis of the lock and that the faces are square. The tenons show traces of old gluing at the level of the assemblies. The ivory plates have some cracks but are in very good condition. Half a moustache foot is missing at the back right. Stamped in hollow Pogliani Milan twice, the decorations are signed. Dimensions: Ht: 12 and 21 x 11 cm. No key.
