Description

Fine quality perfume bottle box in very good condition. Veneered with Kingwood and Tulipwood. The box needs to be examined closely to appreciate the quality of the item. The front, back and sides feature contrasting veneered columns with the grain running diagonally. Rounded corners, again with interesting use of the grain direction. It is however the top that is worthy of particular attention. Edged with solid brass with a complex pattern of squares with bone square centres for additional interest all set within a cross grain border. The more it is examined the more the intricate nature of the work can be appreciated. All veneer and inlays are original, complete and in superb condition. Lid closes perfectly square. Original box width brass hinge. Original lock with what is quite possibly the original working key. The lining is free of tears and stains. The bottles are original. The gilding is in very fine condition and the numbers on the stoppers correspond with the numbers on the bases of the bottles. Neither of the stoppers are stuck in the necks but one bottle has a crack and there is a tiny chip on one of the stoppers. Aside from that this item is in marvellous condition and looks like it has seen little to no use. Perfume bottle boxes are becoming increasingly difficult to obtain in particular fine quality examples such as this piece, and even more so when complete with the original bottles. RECOMMENDED.
