Description

From THE largest selection of jewellery boxes available on this website.
Fine quality inlaid rosewood dressing box made by the partnership of Mechi and Bazin of London. The partnership (John Joseph Mechi & Charles Bazin) is believed to have only spanned the years 1859- 1869 during which time the company enjoyed a good reputation and being based in Regents Street it is reasonable to assume that they catered for the higher end of society. The box is veneered with a fine quality rosewood with a particularly attractive wild grain to all aspects. Measures approximately 9” x 6” x 4”. Solid rosewood edging has certainly helped to prevent damage to the edges. All veneer and edging is original, complete and in excellent condition and possesses the all important unspoilt patina. The lid closes perfectly square. Original hinges and lock, key for decorative purposes only. All lining throughout is original and in very good condition The lid interior features a removable leather panel with hooped retainers for various accessories with storage space behind accessed by a swing clasp. Makers label to the lid storage section. The base section comprises of 7 storage areas of various dimensions. All lining and dividers are original. Solid mahogany leather topped lid to the rear, the section beneath with a removable central divider. The jewellery shown is not included in the sale and is shown to give a general idea of suitability of use by a gentleman. Given the condition of both the interior and exterior I would suggest that this box has had little in the way of use. Nice quality, nice condition, nice item.
