Refurbished 1950s Art Deco Style Jewellery Box With Scottie Dog

  FREE UK NEXT DAY DELIVERY.  We Ship Worldwide.

This is a beautiful small vintage jewellery box. It dates to the 1950s and has a 1930s Art Deco-inspired design. It is attached to a beautifully shaped hand-painted base which features a ceramic Scottie dog. This piece has a most unusual design and it's the only one of its kind that we've personally come across! The interior has been fully refurbished by ourselves.

The Exterior

The box is made of solid wood and has a decorative chest design. Its lid has a textured leather finish and decorative studded copper bands.

The box is fixed to a stylish wood base that features a ceramic Scottie Dog. This may be a 1950s Sylvac ceramic but we cannot view its base to see if it is stamped as such. The Scottie is securely attached with glue and removing it will cause the ceramic to crack. Sylvac were founded in 1894 and are best known for their beautiful ceramic animals that they produced from the 1930s onwards. These included Scottish Terriers as well as other breeds of dogs, cats, rabbits and bears, to name several. The company ceased trading in 1982 and so their pieces are now becoming rarer and more valuable.

The base has an irregular hexagonal shape and a grooved 'tiled floor' design. It has a gold and red enamel hand-painted finish.

The box is complete with its original polished gold piano hinge.

The Interior

The interior has a single small storage compartment that has been fully refurbished by ourselves. It has a new lightly padded red satin panel and new high-quality printed paper linings.

The New Panels and Linings

All of these are completely handmade/cut to size, in order to fit the compartment perfectly. The padded panel provides cushioned protection for jewellery.

The satin has a lovely sheen and a beautiful tight weave. Red satin was chosen to complement the red base.

The paper has a decorative vintage tile effect print and an embossed gold finish. This design was chosen to complement the tile effect base and the red satin reflects beautifully in the paper's gold embossed finish.

The ceramic Scottie is still in excellent condition. It has no chips, cracks or grazes.

The interior satin and paper linings are in immaculate condition, being new.
