Description

Inlaid mahogany jewellery box suitable for a lady or gentleman in very good condition. Some antique boxes are difficult to date as is the case with this box therefore I have erred on the side of safety by indicating a date of later rather than of the Georgian period. Solid mahogany carcass with an outer skin of quite thick veneer. Cross grain border to the top and front. No missing or replaced veneer or banding. Even colour and grain to all aspects. Top handle. Side drawer, again of mahogany construction with nice crafted hand cut dovetailed joints. The drawer is accessed by removing a locking rod located to the box interior and given that a replacement working key is provided all contents of the box can be made secure. The top closes perfectly square. Hinges and lock in fine condition. The lock hasp is missing one of the catches but the remaining clasp ensures that the box can be made secure. The lid interior is the original mahogany finish in good clean condition. Contrasting edge trim to the lid, all original and complete and quite common to see the lipping to the lid of a different colour to the base on boxes from the Georgian period and onwards for a few decades. The base section comprises of the original solid mahogany dividers forming 13 storage areas. All of the dividers can very easily be removed/replaced so as to adapt to varying storage requirements. The base of the storage main storage area and the tray have been relined with a velvet like material. It has not been glued in place (no need) and can simply be lifted out and replaced if a different colour is preferred or when the panels need replacing in years to come. A fine looking box of generous and flexible storage capabilities, ideal for both small and larger items of jewellery. Should be good for a good few more generations to come. (For sale to purchasers within EC countries only).
