This is a lovely old Arts & Crafts jewellery box. It was made towards the end of the Art Nouveau period, circa 1900.

The Exterior

The box is made of very thick card and has a textured leather finish. There are faux tortoiseshell Celtic Knot motifs applied to the lid, suggesting the box was made in Scotland or Ireland.

The Interior

The interior has a removable storage tray at the top which has five compartments and two ring storage sections. The centre compartment has a circular tray which was originally designed to hold a pocket watch. It would now make useful storage for a lovely pendant or locket, or for keeping little stud earrings separate.

Beneath the tray are a further four compartments, created by thick card partitions. These can be removed if desired to create a single larger compartment.

All of the compartments plus the inside of the lid, have their original pretty patterned paper linings. These have an organic flower/fruit print.

The circular tray and ring storage sections have their original velvet linings.


This charming old box is in very fair condition for its 120 years of age. It still has sound structure and has suffered no actual damage.

There is minor wear to the leather along the edges of the lid and to the edges of the cardboard on the base of the box. There is a small piece of faux tortoiseshell missing to the centre motif on the lid.

The interior paper and velvet linings are still in very good condition with barely any wear.

There is some minor surface wear and the remnants of the box's original price sticker on the bottom of the box
