Very Large Antique Walnut Veneered Jewellery Box

This is a fabulous huge jewellery box, dating to 1880/1890. It has a beautiful Walnut veneer with inset brass handle to the lid, and is complete with its original brass working lock, brass stop hinges and brass keyhole escutcheon.

The interior has been fully refurbished and is in keeping with its original. It has a new French polished hardwood tray with a large compartment to the front and 3 smaller compartments to the rear. The front compartment is very spacious and ideal for laying out necklaces and chains. The rear compartments are perfect for small pieces of jewellery such as rings, pendants, earrings and brooches. There is a huge single compartment beneath the tray which will hold large pieces of jewellery such as bangles and watches.

There are beautiful padded, cream silk panels, to all of the compartments plus the inside of the lid. The interior walls and walls of the tray, have been lined with a textured 'Heritage' cream paper. The tray has silk pull tabs and a green felt covering to the base. There is also a new felt covering to the bottom of the box, added to protect the surfaces of furniture.

All of the above refurbishments have been carried out by our trusted skilled box restorer.

Our Jewellery Box Restorer

This wonderful box is in excellent condition for its 125/135 years of age. The exterior has had some minor restoration to consolidate a few shallow cracks.  

The restoration has been sympathetically done and the cracks are now barely visible. There are a few little nibbles to the veneer, on the inside edge of the lid. Again, barely visible.


The key is a replacement which has been perfectly cut to lock the box securely.
