This is a beautiful tapestry decorated box for jewellery and/or trinkets.  It was made in the 1930s in the Tatra Mountains in Poland, for a reputable English firm who were established in the 19th century.  Further details on this are below.

The exterior

The lid of this box has a tapestry picture and lovely scalloped poker work decoration.  The tapestry is finely woven and features Pheasants overlooking a meadow.  There is also some lovely inlaid stringing around the sides of the lid.

The box is complete with its original hinges and the bottom of the box has retained its original manufacturers information label.

History/Manufacturer

This box was made by skilled craftsmen from the Tatra Mountains in Poland.  It was made to a specified design of the English manufacturer J&J Cash.  This firm was established back in 1846 and at this time they were England's leading silk ribbon manufacturer.  The firm are still in production today and
are well known for their quality woven items such as name labels, personalised luggage straps, and bookmarks.

The box started life as a cigarette box but is now functional for storage of jewellery or trinkets. There is no cigarette odour present.


The interior

The interior is lined with cedar wood and has two nicely partitioned storage compartments.  New white felt panels have been added to the bases of the compartments.


Condition

This lovely old box is in excellent condition.  It has no damage and very little wear.

There is one small fine split in the tapestry which is not very unsightly.  This is to the left of the first Pheasants head.  The tapestry has some age related discolouration.  None of the above detracts from the beautiful overall appearance of the box.
