Description

Please see my stock page for one of the largest selection of writing boxes and jewellery boxes available on this website.
Highly attractive and practical combination jewellery/writing box combination box/cabinet in fine condition. Made circa 200 years ago the box is ideal for modern day use in particular given the generous storage capacity for items of jewellery. Attractive grain to all aspects. Stands on the original turned wooden bun feet. Turned wood side handles in perfect condition. Attractive raised feature to the lid. All veneer and edge trim is original and in extremely fine condition. Replaced escutcheon. Original hinges and lock. All contents of the box can be made secure given the working key supplied. The lid, doors and drawers all close square. The lid interior and top storage area have been very neatly relined in keeping with the original lining in evidence in two of the drawers…..a combination of blue and silver. The blue velvet base lining in the top drawer can simply be lifted out if the original silver lining is preferred (please see photographs). The top section and top drawer provides considerable storage space for those larger items of jewellery and/or small ring or necklace jewellery boxes. The second drawer features two layers with dividers and the original blue silk lining, ideal for those smaller items of jewellery. The lining is in remarkable condition!! What looks to be a bottom drawer is in fact a removable writing box section. The entire unit is in excellent condition. Office section comprising of wafer/nib slope, dished pen tray with storage space beneath and inkpot section complete with an antique inkpot of the period. The original embossed velvet is in what is best described as unused condition and it is VERY rare to come across any antique writing box with the original velvet still fully intact across all the fold lines!!! Storage space for stationary beneath the writing platform in excellent condition. Original hinges stamped with the name of a known maker of the period. A seemingly insignificant fact is that with the drawers empty and closed when the second drawer is open and closed the top drawer VERY slightly opens….This is however an indication of the precise build quality of the item…in the same way in which some Georgian caddies quite often have canisters that glide down on a cushion of air rather than ‘plop’ down. A joy to witness…please excuse my enthusiasm. It is not often that these combination boxes/cabinets become available in particular with the degree of original features in such condition. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
