About

Carved overall with arabesques and scrolls, the lid centering a crowned armorial. Cesar Bagard was born in Nancy in 1620. Most of the work known to have been carved by him was completed between 1660 and 1700. His output is recognizable by its Renaissance style ornamentation, shallow relief carving and stippled backgrounds, all features apparent here.

4in. high, 11 1/2in wide and 8 3/4in. deep.
