Description

From THE largest selection of jewellery boxes for ladies or gentlemen available on this website.
Early Victorian (possibly earlier) brass bound rosewood jewellery box in very fine condition suitable for use by either a lady or gentleman. No missing or replaced veneer. Unspoilt patina. Attractive grain to all exterior surfaces. Brass edging to the top and front that complements the inlaid brass cartouche and escutcheon. All original, all in splendid condition. Lid closes square and true on the original brass ‘stop’ hinges. Neatly replaced lock complete with working key. (A tad fiddly but does function) .Embossed panel to the lid interior with swing clasp that when released allows the panel to fold forward to provide access to a ‘love letter’ envelope. The interior of the envelope is in very clean condition and both side folds are still fully intact. The base section comprises the original removable tray with additional storage space beneath. The tray has 13 storage sections of various dimensions mainly for those smaller items of jewellery. Only one section would have originally featured a lid. The red lid depicted in the photographs is believed to be the original as it is a perfect match to the panel to the lid interior. It has sewn ‘hoops’ that would have originally retained a selection of manicure items and perhaps a button hook. A previous owner has either made or had made an additional lid to provide a choice. Obviously considerable care was taken insofar that it is certainly veneered with antique rosewood and a ring handle fitted that is very much in keeping with the period. The ‘spare’ lid can easily be stored either in the base section or in the recess to the lid. The storage space beneath is subdivided, the divider easily removed/replaced to suit storage requirements. The jewellery shown is not included in the sale. A fine looking item that displays well in any setting and is very practical for modern day use.
