These magnificent showpieces were made by Europe’s most celebrated cabinetmaker: André-Charles Boulle. He probably made them for Louis II de Bourbon, Prince de Condé who gave them to his daughter Marie-Thérèse when she married. The boxes have lids so they can be used for storage, although that is of minor importance: they were made for display, as works of decorative art to adorn a princely interior.

On display in room 2.23
