Description

Inlaid rosewood box in very fine condition, possibly of French origin and made during the last quarter of the 1800’s. The box is quite unusual insofar that the lid opens from what would normally be regarded as the side given the dimensions of the item and the storage capacity split between the drawer and the top storage area is the reverse of what would normally be expected. Original inlaid cartouche and escutcheon. All veneer is original, complete and in excellent condition. Original hinges and lock with a replacement, albeit slightly fiddly replacement working key supplied. The lid and drawer close perfectly square. The interior surfaces have been professionally relined with a marbled paper, all in spotless condition. The top storage section is just 1cm in depth but given the depth of the lid will accommodate up to 2.5 cms. The drawer depth is 4.5 cms. A box that lends itself to a wide range of uses.
