Description

A spectacular mid-19th century LADY'S DRESSING & JEWELLERY CASE in fine condition.
The box itself is veneered in red tortoiseshell and inlaid with engraved brass ~ a process known as "?boulle". The lid opens to reveal the superbly fitted interior with its complete full set of nine silver-gilt topped jars and scent bottles which are arranged around a central pad of tools and implements including a silver pencil etc. Within the base is a fitted jewellery drawer and the whole box is lined in fine gilt-tooled red morocco leather. Silver is hallmarked for London 1845. Measurements: 13 x 10 x 7ins.
***The beautiful scissors, although very fine, are not original, nor is the matching mother-of-pearl handled penknife ~ hence the "friendly" price!
Shop Open: 10.00am - 6.00pm Monday-Saturday (Closed Sundays)
Internal Ref: 2028
