Description

From THE largest selection of jewellery boxes available on this website. Please see my stock page.
If you are seeking a gift to celebrate a particularly ‘special’ occasion then this box is certainly worthy of consideration. Suitable for use by a lady or gentleman. The jewellery shown is not included in the sale and shown to give a general idea for use by a gentleman. The item can (within minutes) be made into a very personal gift to celebrate any occasion from a christening through to retirement and for the likes of birthdays, weddings and anniversaries. Veneered with rosewood. Original brass edging to all exterior edges bar the base. Unspoilt patina. No missing or replaced veneer. Original inlaid cartouche and escutcheon. Front drawer accessed by removing a brass locking rod located to the box interior. Given that a replacement working key is supplied all contents of the box can be made secure. The lid closes perfectly square. Original hinges and lock. The main storage section comprises of 14 storage sections of various dimensions. With the exception of 2 of the 3 centre dividers, all dividers are original. The 3 lids are replacements, in common with the replaced dividers are solid mahogany, lacquered to blend with the original fittings and are a perfect fit. All fittings (except 2 small dividers by the back left lid, required for stability) can be simply removed/replaced to suit varying storage requirements. The lid interior features the original rosewood ‘frame’ with the original twin swing clasps that would have originally retained a mirror. A mirror could of course be obtained at a cost a just a few pounds. Instead removable panels have been cut. One is plain blue to complement the lining to the bases of the main storage section and the base of the front drawer. The other panel (again blue to match) has had an aperture cut (contrasting angled edges) to display a standard 150mm x 100mm photograph of your choosing. Should a change of photograph be preferred in years to come it would be a VERY simply matter to make the change…..literally less than 5 minutes. Because all of the panels throughout the box are easy to remove, in many years to come if they become worn, grubby or perhaps a simple change of colour is desired, all can be done very easily. I have from time to time offered boxes with this unique feature and have received nothing but very positive feedback. A very personal gift to mark a wide range of special occasions and quite possibly an item that will be set to become a family heirloom….Is there any greater value than sentimental value?
