PLEASE CONTACT US IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A SIMILAR BOX.  We will endeavour to source one for you!

'NCD10' at checkout.

This is a beautiful antique jewellery box, dating to 1870/80.

The box has a beautiful Rosewood veneer, with brass stringing to the front and lid.  The lock has a lovely brass escutcheon, and the lid has a matching polished brass plaque. This can be personalised with some names or initials, and/or a date of an event.  Your local key cutters should be able to engrave the plaque quite cheaply.

The interior has a single large compartment, complete with its original maroon velvet lining.  It also has a folding pull down pouch on the inside of the lid.  This was designed to store treasured love letters, photos, and anything else which was sentimental or confidential.  It can still be used for the same things today, and it would be lovely to present the box with a beautiful photo or love letter inside it!

There is a beautiful panel to the front of the pouch with woven silk ribbons in the centre.  The rest of the panel is covered with moire silk.  This is all 
completely original! There is a sliding dial clasp which holds the pouch closed.

The box is complete with its original key and it locks securely.  It is also complete with its original brass hinges and lock.


This wonderful box is in lovely condition.  There is no veneer or brass stringing missing.

The silk pouch has some slight wear from the movement of the clasp, and a few stains.  This is consistent with age and use.

The original hessian cover on the base is frayed around the edges and a little patchy.  This is an original feature of the box, and so we decided against replacing it.
