Description

From THE largest selection of jewellery boxes available on this website.
Victorian inlaid burr walnut box that would make an extremely good jewellery box. This was obviously a vanity/dressing box when made and would have contained various jars and containers more than likely with silver plated lids. Given the use of burr walnut and the extent and nature of the Mother of Pearl inlays the item was obviously aimed at the upper end of the market. There is one piece of replaced veneer beneath one of the hinges at the back otherwise all of the veneer looks to be original and complete. The condition of the contrasting veneer on the two bands and all of the Mother of Pearl is in very good condition. Side drawer with the original lining and dividers still fully intact and in very clean condition and springs open nicely upon removing a brass locking rod located to the box interior. The lid closes perfectly square on replacement brass hinges. A previous owner has relined the lid interior and made a neat job of making a velvet lid and velvet covered area for two of the tray sections. The lock mechanism has been tested and works fine but the hasp needs replacing or two wire hoops could be made that would do the job of securing the box if a working key could be made. The tray is original and has all of the original dividers and the original side handles. The storage area beneath the tray and the dividers to the rear of the tray are in very good. The box displays well and could be used as it stands but with a little time it could be enhanced, totally refurbished or indeed the various containers could be obtained as they tended to be of standard sizes and are frequently available online or at auctions etc. A bargain for someone!!
