Lovely Italian Marquetry Inlaid Vintage Jewellery Box


This is a lovely marquetry inlaid jewellery box. It was made in Sorrento, Italy, and it dates to the 1970s.

The Exterior

This box has a lovely Mahogany veneer. The lid has decorative marquetry inlay, plus Satinwood veneered edges and Satinwood stringing. The inlay consists of two different varieties of wood and features scrolled leafy vines and flowers.

The box has its original polished metal piano hinge and a glossy polished and varnished finish.

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

The Interior

The interior has a single storage compartment. It has its original soft red velvety linings with the base panel being nicely padded.

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


This lovely old box is in nice condition and has sound structure.

All of the inlay is present and secure and the hinge is still in good working order.

The veneer has minor light wear and there are a couple of little nicks to the Satinwood frame on the lid. These little flaws are commensurate with age and honest use.

The velvety linings are still in lovely condition. They are clean, neatly fitted, and have no splits.
