Catalogue Note

The maker's mark PT a mitre for device was identified as a 19th century mark by Charles Truman when he published the catalogue of the Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection. Mr Truman also lists two other boxes with the same maker's mark, one in the Wallace Collection, with marks for Paris, 1745-1747, the other in the Victoria and Albert Museum, with marks for Paris, 1746-1747. For further information, see Somers Cocks & Truman, The Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection, Renaissance jewels, gold boxes, etc., London, 1984, no. 87.
