This is a beautiful large antique jewellery box with a lovely Mahogany veneer. It has multiple storage compartments and Mother of Pearl inlay. The box dates to the late Victorian period, circa 1890/1900.

The Exterior

The beautiful Mahogany veneer on this box has lovely figuration and a polished finish.

There is an inlaid Mother of Pearl cartouche on the lid and a complementary Mother of Pearl escutcheon to the keyhole. There are beautifully engraved fancy script initials on the cartouche which appear to be 'AS'.

The box is complete with its original brass 'stop' hinges which hold the lid upright at a 90 degree angle. It also has its original brass lock. Please note there is no key.

The bottom of the box has its original hessian covering.

The Interior

The interior of this box is in original condition, apart from the felt lining that has been added by a previous owner.

The top of the interior has its original removable storage tray. This is large and shallow and has the felt lining mentioned above. There are three further smaller but deeper compartments to the rear of the storage tray.

Beneath the tray is a further single compartment which is large and spacious. This and the rear compartments have their original tan coloured leather linings. The walls of the compartments are unlined.

The inside of the lid has its original dark blue textured silk panel.


This lovely antique box is in very good condition for its 100 plus years of age.

The Mahogany veneer is still beautiful overall. There is a fine age related hairline split on the lid and some loss of veneer to the back left corner of the box. These flaws do not spoil the lovely overall appearance of the box or affect its sound structure.

The hessian on the bottom of the box has some wear from age and friction. We have left this in situ as it is an original feature of the box.

The hinges are still in good working order.
