Throughout the 19th century and early 20th century French jewellers posted items of value to their customers in these wonderful little pine chests secured with red wax seals and twine.This box was posted by the famous Paris jewellers MAUBOUSSIN who opened their doors in Paris in 1827. This divine timeworn confection is addressed to a Madame Duguey in Orne and has a delicieux old sepia ink written label.
