17th Century Olive Oyster Lace Box

Charming and original 12” olive oyster lace box, circa 1680-90.

It is most likely that this gorgeous piece was commissioned during the short reign of William and Mary (1689-1702). This was a great time in British furniture design with some of the most notable pieces to date being commissioned. However, all the credit cannot simply go to the indigenous as a large influx of skilled craftsman flooded in from the continent such as, Daniel Marrot (1661-1752) a French Protestant architect, furniture designer and engraver who was at the forefront of late baroque style.

The curiously named ‘lace box’ or ‘bible box’ veneered in oyster cut hardwoods such as olive and Kingwood were popular amongst the middle and higher classes of society from C.1660-1700.
