Gold, enamelled, the cover inset with a repousse gold plaque. Maker Gabriel-Raoul Morel (w. 1798-c. 1827). Paris, c. 1810-20(?). Musee du Louvre, Paris. Although this box is struck with marks in use between 1791-8 its shape and style of decoration suggest a later date. It may have been worked from an older box, a not unusual practice.
