This is a beautiful antique walnut veneered jewellery box, dating to the late Victorian period. 1880/1890.
The box has wonderful parquetry inlaid strips, running vertically down the lid and its front. These are made of various coloured woods and are known as Berlin Strapwork. These beautiful inlaid strips of wood were usually imported by the yard from Germany. They would then be cut to the required size and used to decorate boxes and other wooden items. Most of these strips were made in Berlin before the first World War, hence becoming known as Berlin Strapwork.
The lid is further decorated with a beautiful Mother of Pearl roundel, and there is a lovely white metal escutcheon to the keyhole. The box has its original brass stop hinges and lock, and its original key which locks the box securely.
The interior has a lift out tray with multiple different sized compartments. Those at the back are ideal for small pieces of jewellery such as rings and brooches, and the larger compartment at the front is perfect for long pieces such as chains and necklaces.
Beneath the tray is a single large compartment in the bottom of the box. This is very spacious and will hold your largest pieces of jewellery such as bangles, bracelets and watches.
The interior has been beautifully refurbished with padded blue matt satin panels. The tray and inner walls have new blue and white floral paper linings, and the base of the tray has a textured blue paper covering.
Navy blue satin pull tabs have been added to the tray, so that it can be lifted out with ease.
The tray is a hardwood replacement in keeping with the original, and has been beautifully French polished.
There is a new green felt cover on the base of the box, to protect the surfaces of furniture.
This wonderful box is in excellent condition for its 120/130 years of age. It is structurally sound and has only minor light age related marks / light surface wear.
The Walnut has aged beautifully and has a lovely colour.
