This is a fabulous vintage jewellery box with stunning exotic wood marquetry inlay. It dates to the 1930s and it has a beautifully refurbished interior.

The Exterior

This box is made of both solid Oak and Pine and has a myriad of stunning exotic wood veneer and inlay.

The veneer and marquetry inlay consist of Burr Thuya, Beech, Maple, Mahogany, Snakewood, Boxwood, Zebrano Wood and others!

The marquetry on the lid features a large diamond frame with a large central star. The marquetry to the front has a stunning honeycomb design. The marquetry is made up of numerous, beautifully shaped, pieces of wood.

There is a lovely inset brass escutcheon to the keyhole and the box is complete with its original solid brass hinges, lock and key.

The box stands slightly raised on its original squat bun feet and has beautiful dovetail joints.

The box has beautifully moulded edges and rounded corners.

This is a fabulous high quality skilfully made box and we've never seen another one with the same marquetry decoration.

The Interior

The interior has a deep spacious compartment which 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 walls. The satin is a beautiful deep turquoise blue shade.

The compartment is a generous size, roomy and deep enough to store large pieces of jewellery such as wide bangles, watches and beads. Please see the measurements given below.


This fabulous box is in extremely good condition. It is structurally sound and has only minor light age-related wear. The wear is mainly on the honeycomb marquetry and is in no way unsightly.

All of the inlay and veneer is present and the box locks securely.

The interior silk, being new, is in pristine clean unused condition.
