Condition Report

In overall good condition.

 

Literature

During the 1850's and 1860's, black was the color of luxury, recalling the ebony and lacquers of the Far East. The bourgeoisie bought furniture and objects in paper maché (in part composed of boiled cardboard) that had been lacquered and inlaid with mother-of-pearl. These techniques gave striking contrast and elegance to objects whose production was relatively inexpensive.
