The box has its original white metal 'stop' hinges which hold the lid upright. It also has its original working lock and key. The lock is stamped BRITISH MAKE.

The Interior

The interior has a removable storage tray with three compartments and a ring storage section. Beneath this is a further larger single compartment.

The central compartment of the tray has a circular section that was originally designed to hold a pocket watch. This is a lovely storage feature and would look beautiful with a pendant or locket inside it. The compartment has its original velvet lining and the circular section has its original satin lining.

The side compartments of the tray, plus the inside of the lid and the base of the lower compartment, are all lined with their original padded satin panels.

The ring storage section of the tray has its original velvet covering.

The interior walls and exterior of the tray, all have a black leather finish.


This box is in lovely condition for its age. The leather has a small amount of light surface wear, commensurate with age and honest use.

The interior velvet and satin linings are still in very good condition with no splits or fraying. There is minor wear to the velvet.

The hinges and lock are still in great working order.

There is minor surface wear/tarnish to the handle.
