 This Fine Relic Has Been Sold. Thank you!

FRENCH ROYAL 
BURLED WOOD CAMPAIGN
DECANTER SET
“Bourbon Royalty Connection”



Presented is an exquisitely made French Walnut burled wood campaign decanter box with four glass decanters. The case has brass corners and inset campaign handles of the highest quality brass work. There is a brass escutcheon (heraldic shield) inlaid in the hinged top. There are four numbered compartments, all lined with red and gold tooled leather. We believe the glass was hand blown into a mold.

DIMENSIONS: Case 8“ square x 9 1/4“ H One bottle 2 3/4“ square x 71/2” H
Weight 10 lbs

PROVENANCE: The set was originally sold by a dealer on the famous and historic street, Rue St. Honore, which dates back to the 13th Century. The building next door No. 155, was the first "Café de la Regence", and in 1815 was the scene at the beginning of the Restoration, where clashes between officers and demobilized Napoleonic royalist officers took place. Today the street is home to the most fashionable of shops such as Channel, Hermes, and Bulgari, and many restaurants.

Translating its label, the name MAIRE means Mayor and likely was the name of the shop. The rest of the label in English tells us they were located at number 154 and were across the street from number 10, The Oratore, and they were manufacturers of necessities to the King, HRH Duchess of Angouleme, and the crown princes
 
TIME LINE: Our interpretation of the label is that the King refers to Louis XVI whose daughter, Marie Terresa, (December 1778 – October 1851) became Duchess of Angouleme upon her marriage to the Duke, Louis Antoine, in June, 1799. Because of the Revolution, Napoleon's rise to power, his exile and return, and the exiles of the royal family, and the Restoration of the Bourbon Rule, and finally the forming of the Republics of which there were three, we can only surmise that the set was made before 1831 and as early as 1800. Her husband reigned for 30 minutes as Louis XIX of France and she as his queen in 1830. Much of the rest of her life was spent in exile. SAR refers to the Son Altesse Royale.

The label in English reads:

Rue St. Honore' No. 154
Vis a vis 10 L'Oratorie
MAIRE
Fabricant de Neccessaires du Roi
de SAR Madame Duchess d'Angouleme
Et des Princes a Paris

                     Compact housing for decanters 
                        From the back showing heraldic shield


                 Brass campaign hardware - original key 
                            Back hinge and elegant burl wood

 

                   Front decanters
                    Rear decanters


CONDITION: The case is in exceptional condition and under certain lighting shows a couple of thin age cracks on its top and the unfinished bottom has a larger crack, There are only a few blemishes to the wood, none of which are of consequence. The brass has only minor marks of age and is near perfect. There are no missing or damaged inlays, and all the burled wood is present. One bottle has a cracked stopper. One bottle has a crack at the neck that stops at the outward turn and a chipped stopper. One bottle has a stain at its bottom. 

                 The neck has been repaired 
                  This stopper is chipped
