Mahogany Unisex Jewellery Box. Adjustable Storage. C1850

Status: This item has been sold
Sold by: Antique Boxes and Collectables

Description

Solid mahogany inlaid jewellery box – apothecary box in very fine condition. Measures approximately 8 ¾” x 6 ¾” x 8 ¼”. The box was original an apothecary box but over the course of circa 150 years the various jars and accessories that the box would have once contained have gone astray. The various items could of course be obtained but as the box stands it would make a splendid jewellery box for a lady or gentleman. All of the wood is in very good condition with no shrinkage splits and good even colour and grain to all aspects. Original inlaid handles to the top and front drawer. Original escutcheon. Top closes perfectly square on the original brass hinges. The main open storage area is ideal for those larger items of jewellery or perhaps the likes of wristwatches or bracelets within their original cases. The drawer is accessed by removing a brass locking rod located alongside the lock in the top section of the box. Given that a replacement working key is supplied for the original lock, all contents throughout can be made secure. The drawer features neat hand cut dovetailed joints to all 4 corners for strength and durability. The storage section is ideal for those smaller items of jewellery. 5 open sections of varying dimensions to the front area with a full drawer width narrow section to the back that can be removed to access an additional 5 small storage sections. All bar one of the dividers can be easily removed/replaced to cater for varying storage requirements. The base of the drawer, main storage area and the lid interior feature removable panels therefore they can be very easily removed should a change of colour be preferred. The jewellery shown is not included in the sale and is shown to give an idea of suitability of use by a gentleman. Boxes of this style were made to last and there should be no good reason why this box should not last for many generations to come. A box of classic styling, of convenient and practical dimensions of far better quality than the vast majority of modern produced boxes.
