Beautiful Art Deco Walnut Jewellery Box


This is a beautiful Art Deco jewellery box, dating to the 1920s/1930s.

The Exterior

This box is made of solid Walnut which has a wonderful rich colour and beautiful figuration. The front and lid have superb Walnut veneered panels. These pieces of Walnut have been 'oyster' cut and beautifully positioned to form a very decorative pattern. Further details of this Oystering technique are below.

The lid has a stylish cream Bakelite lipped handle. Bakelite was a popular new material of the Art Deco period.

The box has a stylish flat streamlined shape which is typical of the Art Deco period. It stands raised on beautiful long Walnut block feet. The front edge of the lid is beautifully curved.

The box has superb retracting chrome quadrant hinges which are a very good sign of a high-quality box.

The Walnut to the exterior has a glossy polished finish.

The Oyster Cut Veneered Panels

Oystering is a very skilled craft. This woodworking technique uses thin slices of wood that are cut in cross-section to form circular or oval veneered panels. These panels are then placed side by side to create beautiful decorative patterns.

The Interior

The interior has a single compartment that is lined with Cedarwood. The base of the compartment has a plush padded pale blue velour panel that provides cushioned protection for jewellery.


This fabulous box is in excellent condition. It is structurally sound and has only minor light age-related surface wear.

The interior velour panel is still in lovely clean condition and has no splits or fraying.

The hinges are still in perfect working order and have retained their polished shiny finish.
