This is a beautiful antique late Victorian jewellery box. It has a lovely Rosewood veneer and very decorative Mother Of Pearl shell inlay. It is complete with its original brass lock and key, and it also has its original brass stop hinges. These prevent the lid from falling backwards. The Rosewood has beautiful figuration, and there is a lovely Mother Of Pearl escutcheon to the keyhole. This finishes the box off beautifully and compliments the inlay which is on the lid! Age/History Circa 1870. This beautiful box originally started life as a very stylish glove box. It is a superb high quality box which would've sat on a Victorian lady's dressing table, storing her expensive silk gloves. It has now been refurbished and converted into a much more functional jewellery box for modern use! The conversion/refurbishment is brand new and was recently carried out by our very own skilled box restorer. We have had our restorer on board with us for several years now, and his work is always of the highest standard. The Converted/Refurbished Interior The interior has a new French polished and stained, hardwood storage tray. This is a brand new addition to the box. Beneath this tray is the original compartment of the box where gloves would once have been stored. The addition of the tray means there are now two compartments for jewellery storage. There are beautiful new padded, blue satin panels, to both compartments and the inside of the lid. There are also lovely new blue paper coverings to the interior walls. New felt linings have been added to both the new storage tray and the bottom of the box. These will prevent the scratching of your furniture. Condition This beautiful box is in excellent condition. It is structurally sound and free of damage. The interior being newly refurbished is in wonderful pristine condition! There is some minor light age related wear to the exterior as you'd expect on a box which is almost 150 years old. All of the Mother Of Pearl inlay is present and intact.
