Description:
This is a fine quality antique Anglo-Indian Victorian colonial / campaign teak box, circa 1880, in excellent original condition. Ideal for use as either a writing, jewellery or sewing box, storage chest or small coffee table. The exterior of the box comprises a straight lid over a flush body. The lid retains its original working lock, with working key, and opens to reveal an interior of 6 compartments. The inside of the lid incorporates a full-width letter rack. Below, the box features a separate, teak-lined locking drawer, which features dovetail construction and retains its original brass handle and escutcheon, along with the original working lock and working key. The box sits on a flush, straight plinth.

This box is a truly classic example from the late Victorian period in colonial India and displays an attractive, utilitarian aesthetic. It is rare to see an example, which not only is in excellent condition, but also completely original.

Condition Report:
This Anglo-Indian Victorian colonial / campaign teak box in excellent original condition, which is commensurate with its age. Nominal old use marks to the exterior and leading edges of the box, but nothing significant considering the age of the item. There are no missing compartments to the box interior and the letter rack is original. The box features its original external working outer lock, to the front, with a working key. The drawer is hand dovetailed, teak lined and retains its original brass handle & escutcheon, with original working lock and working key. The original brass hinges are also in good working order. The box has been cleaned and French polished in our workshop, therefore it now boasts a lovely colour and patination to the timber. This item is solid in joint and ready to use.
