French gold for letter case, early empire.

French gold for letter case, early empire. Subtle and noble nature, full of restrained grandeur and noble self-respect. Made as a two-piece case with guillache engravings and ornamental belts, along the structural edges of the product. Gracefully finished with an octagonal "cap" with a diamond-shaped leaf. Intended for personal notes and notes. An excellent memory of Napoleon′s golden era. The rich history of the case is reflected in the abundance of its brands.
