Description

From THE largest selection of jewellery boxes available on this website.
Early Victorian inlaid rosewood jewellery box suitable for a lady or gentleman in excellent condition. No missing or replaced veneer. .Deep rich colour that contrast well against the inlaid brass. Brass straps that extend down the full depth to the rear of the box rather than stop at the back edge of the lid as with many boxes produced later during the 19th century. Rosette style cartouche with simple circular escutcheon. All inlays are original, complete and in A1 condition. All box edges are crisp and clean. Lid closes perfectly square and opens to reveal a very impressive interior. Original brass ‘stop’ hinges and lock with a replacement working key supplied. Whoever did the refurbishment obviously took his/her time and took pride in his/her work. Please note the extent of the gilt tooling to the leather frame that surrounds the ruched velvet panel. I would suggest that most people would have made do with 1 or 2 gilt borders on a frame of such width rather than more than doubling the effort to provide 5!! Nice attention to detail with the gilt tooling to the top edges of the tray and all of the dividers to complement the lid panel. The tray and dividers are leather covered with velvet to the 9 storage sections. Metal side handles to the tray to assist access to the storage area beneath that is lined throughout with velvet. As stated the box is suitable for a lady or gentleman, perhaps given the style of the exterior more appropriate for a gentleman? The tray would be ideal for the likes of cufflinks and the base section suitable for wristwatches. One very attractive box that displays well in any setting and one that has been refitted to a very high standard.
