This is a fabulous antique jewellery box with stunning hand-painted floral decoration. It was made during the Art Nouveau period and dates to 1890/1900. The interior has been beautifully refurbished by our skilled box restorer.

The Exterior

The exterior has a lovely dark stained finish and absolutely beautiful hand-painted organic subjects.

There is a large hand-painted scene on the lid featuring budding Lilies and Water Lily leaves. These are surrounded by a lovely painted oval frame. There are also beautiful painted Suns above the frame.

To the front of the box, surrounding the keyhole is a beautiful large painting of the inside of a seed pod. Also to the front are lovely painted berry garlands, hanging from pretty ribbons which extend from the lid.

Our skilled box restorer has added a new bone escutcheon to the keyhole. This is beautifully inset flush against the wood.

The box is complete with its original working brass lock. This has a replacement period key which locks the box securely. The box also has its original brass 'stop' hinges which hold the lid upright.

The bottom of the box has a new soft felt lining which will protect the surfaces of furniture.

The Interior

The interior has a single storage compartment which has been beautifully refurbished by our skilled box restorer. There is a new padded sage green satin panel in the base and new sage green satin linings to the walls.

The compartment is fairly large and spacious. It is deep enough to store large pieces of jewellery such as watches, wide bangles and beads.

The inside of the lid has beautiful new quality paper linings. That to the centre is a patterned pale green paper with beautiful white Poppy motifs.
