The Gilbert Collection contains six boxes by Gabriel-Raoul Morel, illustrated in C. Truman, The Gilbert Collection of Gold Boxes, Volume II, London, 1999, p. 65, no. 12, and in C. Truman, The Gilbert Collection of Gold Boxes, Los Angeles, 1991, p. 128, no. 40 and pp. 136-147, nos. 44-47. Together with Vachette and Fossin, Gabriel-Raoul Morel, who struck his mark as early as 1797, may be considered as one of the most important French gold box makers of the first half of the 19th Century.
