For a Swiss snuff-box by Bautte & Moynier with five gold plaques by Kirstein, see C. Truman, The Gilbert Collection of Gold Boxes - Volume Two, London, 1999, no. 47. Another similar large box with five plaques was in the collection of Mrs Charles W. Engelhard, sold Christie's, New York, 18 March 2005, lot 80.
The Gilbert Collection, London, contains six gold boxes by Gabriel Raoul Morel (illustrated in Truman, op. cit., no. 12, and in C. Truman, The Gilbert Collection of Gold Boxes, Los Angeles, 1991, nos. 40, 44, 45, 46 and 47). The latter four show the same accomplished craftmanship in the quality of the cagework mounts as the present box. 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 boxes makers of the first half of the 19th Century.
