Description

Please see my other jewellery boxes available.
Large jewellery box suitable for a wide range of purposes for use by either a lady or gentleman. The style is certainly heavily influenced by the Tunbridge Ware box makers of the Georgian/Regency period. Please note the perspective cubes to the top and the Van Dyke style inlays to ALL aspects of the base section. Aside from the parquetry veneers and the various inlaid strips and bands the main veneer featured is burr walnut. The lid closes perfectly square and true. Hinges and lock in excellent condition with a replacement working key supplied. The box interior differs from the norm insofar it is veneered throughout with walnut, all original, all in excellent condition with the lid interior ‘book matched’ to provide a particularly pleasing effect. The removable tray is more robust in construction that usual for a box of the period. It is very practical as ALL of the dividers can simple be lifted out/replaced so as to provide a considerable variation of options in terms of the dimensions of the numerous storage sections to suit changing requirements. Approximately a half of the dividers have been replaced but the work has been extremely well using solid mahogany and obviously picking up on the original ‘v’ cuts that existed. The box exterior has been previously restored as upon close examination and some viewing angles the restoration can be seen but it is fair to state that whoever did the work must have exercised considerable skills and patience! I think it important to provide comprehensive descriptions, including minor defects rather than have potential buyers rely solely upon photographs. Given the style and features of the exterior and interior this must have been quite an expensive item when made. Nice item.
