These Jaques neo-classical or Grecian sarcophagus boxes are not only highly attractive- they're pretty scarce. Over my career selling antique chess sets, I can only remember selling one or two; they rarely come up. So I'm thrilled to be offering this example, which is not only extremly pretty, it's in an excellent condition too. A lovely thing. Highly recommended.
