Boxwood nutcracker in French Regence period

A superb nutcracker carved in boxwood. The front is adorned with a volute shell-shaped with a small garland underneath, which can also be found on the furniture of that era. All the sides are beautifully delineated. The top shows signs of intensive use, already well patinated over time, which suggests that it was used as a hammer to open the nuts.

France. Regency (in France, a style between Louis XIV and Louis XV). Circa 1715-1723.

Provenance: from an important Parisian private collection.

Dimensions: length 19,5cm ; front & sides : 4cm x 4cm

In excellent condition with normal traces of use. Beautiful silky patina.
