Beautiful Large Antique Mahogany Jewellery Box

This is a beautiful large Victorian jewellery box, dating to 1880/90.

The Exterior

This box has a beautiful Mahogany veneer which has lovely figuration and a warm rich colour.

There is a lovely inlaid Mother of Pearl cartouche on the lid and a matching Mother of Pearl escutcheon to the lock. Both have inlaid white metal frames.

The box is complete with its original brass lock and brass 'stop' hinges. These prevent the lid from falling back.

The box is also complete with its original key but please note that this is for decorative purposes only. The lock is temperamental and we advise against using it. Often it jams and can be very difficult to unlock when this occurs.

The bottom of the box has a soft burgundy felt covering. This was added by the previous owner to replace the original worn covering.

The Interior

The interior has a removable storage tray with multiple compartments and there is a further large single compartment beneath the tray.

The interior has been refurbished by its previous owner. The refurbishment is amateur but has been done quite nicely.

The tray and inner walls of the single base compartment/inside of the lid, have new textured blue and white paper linings. There is a glossy white thin vinyl covering to the base of the tray.

There are beautiful new padded silk panels to the inside of the lid and the base compartment. The panel to the inside of the lid has been beautifully detailed with white metal beading. This has given the panel a quilted like appearance. The silk is a pale turquoise blue shade.


This wonderful box is in excellent condition for its 120/30 years of age. It is a sturdy weighty box of sound structure. All of the veneer and Mother of Pearl inlay is present and intact. There are no chips or cracks. There is only minor light age related wear.

The hinges are still firmly attached and in excellent working order. As stated earlier the lock is temperamental and we advise against using it.
