Description

Early Victorian inlaid rosewood jewellery box in very good condition. No missing or replaced veneer. Even colour and grain to all aspects. Twin inlaid brass strips that extend down the rear of the box rather than stopping at the back edge of the lid as with most antique boxes of similar style. Inlaid brass cartouche and escutcheon. All inlays are original and complete. Lid closes perfectly square on the original hinges. Original lock, key for decorative purposes only. The lid interior features the original leather panel that has survived extremely well….. no tears with the original top swing clasp and pull tab still present. The panel folds forward to reveal a small recess to the lid that would have once accommodated a mirror. That could simply be replaced but a mounting card has been cut and included that fits perfectly and could be used to personalise the box by adding a photograph of a loved one or any favourite place etc. (Photograph ‘window’ no smaller than 145mm x 95mm). All lining throughout the lid interior is original. The base section comprises of a removable tray with eleven storage sections of various dimensions. Original rosewood lid with finely turned wooden knob to the left. Storage section beneath the tray with the original divider and lining throughout. The box would have once contained various accessories for a gentleman, razors, shaving jar, small containers , button hook etc. The various dimensions of the storage areas of the tray and the larger or gentleman. Given the style and original purpose intended I have provided images for use by a gentleman. The items shown are not included in the sale. A fine item, of sound construction with a high degree of original features that can be personalised as a ‘special’ gift.
