This is a wonderful 1930s Art Deco jewellery box, with a very stylish briefcase design.

The Exterior

This box is made of real Crocodile skin which is a lovely warm Chestnut shade of brown.  It has a beautiful brass catch which closes it securely, and a lovely carrying strap.

This box was made in England as stamped on the bottom.

The Interior

The interior has a removable tray at the top, with three storage compartments, plus a ring storage section in the centre.  It also has a further, larger compartment beneath.  All of the compartments are lined with beige velvet, and there is a lovely velvet pad in the top right compartment.  This pad acts as a soft protective cover for your most delicate pieces of jewellery.  It is very nicely stitched and has pretty edging.  

The top compartments are an ideal size for small pieces of jewellery such as earrings, pendants, chains and brooches etc.  The larger bottom compartment is deep enough and roomy enough for bigger pieces of jewellery such as bangles, watches and beads etc.

Both the tray and inner walls of the lower compartment, have brown natural leather coverings. This has naturally worn over time and now has a lovely tactile smoothness.

The base of the tray and the bottom of the box, have vinyl coverings with a leather like appearance.

The Catch/Lock

The catch is released by pushing down the left button next to the lock.


There is no key with the box but its catch keeps the lid securely closed.


The box is still in excellent condition despite its 85 plus years of age!  There is very little wear to the Crocodile skin and only minor wear to the brass catch along its top edge.  The interior velvet linings are also still excellent with no splits whatsoever.
