Description

From THE largest selection of jewellery boxes available on this website.
Victorian inlaid rosewood jewellery – work box in fine condition with an extremely high degree of original features. Even colour and grain to the rosewood veneer. Inlaid Mother of Pearl cartouche and escutcheon with subtle inlaid pewter surround. Lid closes perfectly square. Opens to reveal a fully fitted removable tray with storage space beneath. Hinges and lock in very good condition. Panel to the lid interior with swing clasp that when released allows the panel to fold forward to grant access to a ‘love letter’ storage envelope. The fold line to the base and to the left side are worn but is still functional. All dividers and lids etc in the tray are original and complete. In fact other than the replacement working key and minor repair to the envelope side fold every aspect of this box is original. I think it fair to state that it has had little use over the course of circa 140 years. These Victorian work/sewing boxes are invariably put to good modern day use as jewellery boxes, the various dimensions of the storage sections within the tray and the open storage section beneath making them ideal for the purpose and generally they are far more attractive than the jewellery boxes produced nowadays……Beyond doubt they hold their value better!!
Unpacked weight 1Kg.
