Beautiful Large Antique Rosewood Jewellery Box

This is a beautiful large Victorian jewellery box, dating to 1880/90. It has a wonderful Rosewood veneer and its original working lock and key.

The Exterior

This box has a beautiful Rosewood veneer which has a wonderful warm rich colour.

The Rosewood has lovely figuration and its characteristic black streaks. It also has a particularly nice pattern within the grain, on the left side of the box.

There is a lovely Mother of Pearl cartouche on the lid and a matching Mother of Pearl escutcheon to the lock.

The box is complete with its original working lock and 'stop' hinges. These prevent the lid from falling back. There is a replacement key that locks the box securely.

The Interior

The interior has a large four-compartment storage tray and a further large single compartment beneath.

The interior has been completely refurbished. The tray has beautiful soft felt linings which are a vibrant shade of pink. The inside of the lid has a black felt lining. The exterior of the tray and the base compartment have a red paper covering/lining. The bottom of the box has a black felt covering which will protect the surfaces of your furniture.


This wonderful box is in excellent condition for its 120/30 years of age. It is a strong weighty box of sound structure.

There is some minor light age-related wear to the veneer but no nasty cracks or damage. The Mother of Pearl is in lovely condition with no chips or cracks. There is a small amount of glue residue to the felt in the left compartment of the storage tray. This is just along the edge of the right-hand side, at the bottom, next to the partition.

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