Description

From THE largest selection of jewellery boxes available on this website.
Figured walnut jewellery – work box made during the last quarter of the 1800’s in fine condition. Measures approximately 10 ¾” x 8” x 5”. Unspoilt patina. Attractive grain to all aspects of the exterior. Contrasting ebony edging. Tunbridge Ware style inlaid bands. Original inlaid Mother of Pearl cartouche and escutcheon set within a multi veneer strip ‘frame’. Top closes perfectly square. Original hinges and lock with a replacement working key supplied. Original panel to the lid interior that folds forward to provide access to a ‘love letter’ envelope, both side folds still fully intact. Removable tray with storage space beneath with the original lining. The tray is void of one needle ‘wallet’ and in all probability one satin covered section to the back centre but unless you are familiar with the layout of boxes of the style and period it is quite probable that you would not notice. Some of the dividers have I believe been restored but whoever did the work must have gone to great trouble to do the job very much in keeping with the original. All of the lids, pull tabs, Mother of Pearl knobs are original, present and in very good condition. These antique work/sewing boxes were extremely popular during the 1800’s. Nowadays they are generally put to good practical use serving as jewellery boxes. The style of box with the Tunbridge Ware style bands were made from circa 1875 with the vast majority veneered with walnut, though generally of less quality than this example and most tended to only have better quality veneer on the top and front of the box rather than to all aspects as with this particular example.
