This is a stylish vintage jewellery box, dating to the 1950s. It has a glass lid, a genuine Moroccan leather finish on all sides, and a beautifully refurbished interior.

The Exterior

This box has an unusual elongated octagonal shape. It has a dark tan leather finish on all 8 sides. The leather has beautiful tooled decoration with gilt detail.

The lid has a beautiful large glass panel with bevelled edges. This allows you to see whatever jewellery is stored in the interior compartment.

The box is complete with its original working lock and key. It also has its original 'stop' hinges which prevent the lid from falling back. There is a stylish oval metal escutcheon to the keyhole.

The bottom of the box has its original vinyl covering. The vinyl has a faint handwritten inscription which reads 'Anne Dawson, Sonny's Wife'. This is probably a previous owner of the box and is a nice little snippet of its history.

The Interior

The interior compartment has been beautifully refurbished by our skilled box restorer. It has a new padded satin panel in the base and new satin linings to the interior walls. The satin is a beautiful pastel teal blue shade.

The interior walls of the lid have their original light beige velvet linings.

Notes About Vintage Locks

We would like to make you aware that vintage locks can occasionally malfunction at any time. They are already very old and will naturally have some wear from age and use. We are not responsible for locks that malfunction from further age and use once boxes are purchased.

Please ensure the lock is working as soon as you receive your box.

You can view our full returns policy which includes locks, by visiting our Payments And Returns page.


This wonderful box is in excellent condition for its 60 plus years of age. There is minor light age-related wear to the leather.

There is some friction wear to the vinyl on the bottom of the box. This is as we'd expect on a box of this age.

The interior satin, being new, is in excellent unworn condition. The original velvet linings to the lid are very good with no splits or fraying.

The glass is clean and has no cracks or scratches.

The hinges and lock are in good working order.
