Although in a rather obscure situation for such delicate work, this little case will well repay close scrutiny. We would call special attention to the Mother of Pearl Carving in the little glass shade representing Roustan, the Marmaduke of Napoleon. Mr. Kuner also exhibits a frame of seals struck from dies of his manufacture, which are beautifully finished. [P. 130.]
