Beautifully Refurbished Rosewood Victorian Jewellery Box


This is a wonderful Mid-Victorian jewellery box with a beautiful fully refurbished interior! It dates to around 1850/1860 and is still in extremely good condition. The box is complete with its original working lock and key.

The Exterior

The box has beautiful Rosewood veneer that has a rich warm colour and superb figuration. The lid has high-quality inlaid brass stringing plus very beautiful inlaid brass 'toothed' roundels. These lovely roundels are rarer and much more decorative than the more usual uncut plain types. There is a complementary inlaid, shield-shaped brass escutcheon to the keyhole.

The box is complete with its original brass 'stop' hinges that hold the lid upright. It also has its original working brass lock and key.

The bottom of the box has a new black felt covering that will protect the surfaces of furniture.

The Interior

The interior has been fully refurbished by ourselves.

There are new velvet panels to the base of the compartment and to all of the interior walls.

There is a new printed paper panel to the inside of the lid which adds a beautiful feature to the interior.

The New Velvet Panels

All of these have been completely handmade to ensure they fit the interior perfectly.

A quality premium velvet has been used. This is plush and has a beautiful tight weave. It has a gorgeous dusky pink 'antique Rose' colour. The panel to the base of the compartment is padded, providing cushioned protection for jewellery.

The New Paper Panel

This high-quality paper has a beautiful print that features Hummingbirds and various flowers! It has a biscuit cream shade with a rosewood pink print. This paper was chosen to complement the colour of the velvet and Rosewood, and its print is similar to those on original antique lining papers.
