    A French Deco rectangular box actually of ivory, but stained to resemble tortoise-shell, of Chinoiserie inspiration. The cover is engraved and gilded with flower-pots between inlaid coral and moher o' pearl discs and applied with white gold bands set at the ends with rose-cut diamonds; the clasp similarly set. The gold hinge is stamped with French 18ct control marks, and the maker's mark of Strauss, Allard & Meyer, Paris. This maker's mark has been found on boxes signed by Cartier, Boucheron and other French makers. As box-making is rather specialised, it is quite normal that their manufacture should be contracted-out to specialists; the same applied to much jewellery signed by the major houses. The box is 3 1/4 x 2 3/8 x 5/8 inches; 84 x 62 x 18mm. It is in excellent condition

    N.Bloom & Son

    N.Bloom & Son was established by my maternal grandfather in 1912. I have run the business since 1971. I specialise in high-quality old jewellery, mostly late 19th and 20th century, of interesting and unusual design. After having a succession of shops in the West End over forty years, and having a achieved a high reputation and profile with the public, I decided to close my last shop in 2005, and now I trade solely over the internet, or by person-to-person contact with clients. I can be contacted by telephone 020 7629 5060, or from abroad 0044 20 7629 5060 or by email as below. Prices ncludes insured free-of-charge UK/Europe posting for any item, or free-of-charge sending by FedEx world-wide for any item over £500’
