Our Jewellery Box Restorer

You can read about Jim, our wonderful box restorer, by visiting our About Us page.


This wonderful box is in very good condition for its 80 plus years of age. All of the inlay is present and intact and the box is structurally sound. There are a few marks/fine superficial lines to the veneer, none of which are overly evident.

The interior silk panels and linings are in very fair condition for their age. Being 80 years old they do have some wear, marks and discoluration, but overall they are very good.

The hinge and lock are still in good working order.
