2 Italian Marquetry Inlaid Vintage Jewellery Boxes


These two beautiful marquetry inlaid boxes are for jewellery or little trinkets. They were both made in Italy and they both date to the 1960/70s.

The Largest Box

This box has a lovely Mahogany veneer and beautiful marquetry inlay to the lid. The inlay is made from several varieties of wood and features beautiful flowers and leaves.

The box is nicely finished with Satinwood stringing, to both the lid and all four sides of the box.

The exterior has been polished and varnished, and has a lovely glossy sheen.

The box is complete with its original piano hinge. This is a quality stop hinge which holds the lid upright.

The bottom of the box has retained its original MADE IN ITALY label.

The Interior

The interior has a single unlined storage compartment. This is made of Satinwood. The compartment and the inside of the lid are polished and varnished.

The Smaller Box

The lid of this box has beautiful marquetry inlay, plus a Satinwood frame and Satinwood stringing. The inlay features scrolling leafy vines and flowers.

This box also has its original piano 'stop' hinge and a glossy polished and varnished finish.

The bottom of this box has also retained its original MADE IN ITALY label.

The Interior

The interior has a single storage compartment. Its walls are lined with soft red velvet, and it has a soft red padded panel in the base.

The inside of the lid has a polished and varnished Mahogany veneer.


These two lovely boxes are in very nice condition for their 40-50 years of age. All of their inlay is present and intact, and their hinges are in good working order.

The larger box has minor light age-related wear, and some surface scratches on the bottom. These cannot be seen unless you turn the box over.

The smaller box has minor age-related wear and a couple of little nicks to the Satinwood frame on the lid. These are circled on image 4. The interior linings are still in lovely condition.
