Beautiful Antique Burgundy Leather Jewellery Box

This is a beautiful antique jewellery box with a burgundy leather finish. It has a beautiful velvet and satin lined interior which is completely original and in excellent condition!

The interior has a lift-out storage tray with multiple compartments and beneath the tray, there is a large roomy single compartment.

The Storage Tray

The two rear side compartments are a perfect size for small pieces of jewellery such as earrings and brooches. There are two ring storage sections next to these and a further compartment in the centre. This compartment has a circular holder which was originally designed to hold a pocket watch. This holder would now look nice with a beautiful locket or pendant. There is a long shallow ledge at the front of the tray with fine tubular pockets in the centre. These little pockets are multi-purpose. The pockets themselves hold stick pins or brooches and chains can be laid out between them. The pockets keep the chains separated and prevent them from tangling up.

The tray is finished with burgundy leather and has its original leather pull tabs. It is beautifully lined with soft plush velvet.

The large roomy compartment beneath the tray has a fitted padded velvet panel. 

The inside of the lid has a ruched satin lining, embellished with a beautiful solid brass motif. It also has a satin pouch designed to hold treasured photos and letters.

The box has its original nickel stop hinges which prevent the lid from falling back. It also has its original key and nickel lock. There is a decorative oval escutcheon to the lock and the lid has a leather strap handle.


Edwardian. 1900/1910.


The interior is in amazing condition with very little wear! There are no tears or fraying to the satin and the velvet is near perfect.

The leather to the exterior has some minor fading and minor wear marks.

The wear is in all the expected places, mainly to the sides and on/around the handle. This is general wear from handling and shows that the box has been loved and used.

The lock and hinges are in perfect working order and the box locks securely with its key.
