A superb example of a small Papier Mâché table top cabinet. This piece is intended for jewllery or small collectors' items. The door opens to reveal 5 sliding drawers, inlaid with shell and with Mother-of-Pearl flower knobs. The Mother-of-Pearl inlay on the lid shows a dove in a floral bower, which is delightful. The front and sides have panels of floral bouquets and gilding.  The lock and key are original are working.  A really charming piece.  (Reference: 391)
