A veneered writing box on a stand

A French writing box decorated with geometrical patterned wood marquetry, with two small drawers in the front, the keyhole adorned with gilt bronze, on a four feet Louis XV style stand, each foot ending with a gilt and chiseled bronze ornament.The archives and their inventories are sources of information attesting to the importance of the role and of the position held by the writing cases and the ink : they are symbols of wealth, power and knowledge through the use of writing. As long as their use was unavoidable, they were used as gifts on many occasions. Many were received from the greatest of this world : kings and queens, emperors and empresses, princes and nobles ...As time goes by, from the extension to the acquisition of the writing knowledge, the inkstand, tool remaining simple and foremost usual, was overtaken by the art and some of them obtained the status of works of art and recognized as masterpieces.
