This is a beautiful early vintage jewellery box, dating to the 1940s, and complete with its original working lock and key.
The exterior has a beautiful warm, burgundy leather finish. It has a lovely brass escutcheon to the keyhole and a pretty embossed gold border on the lid.
The box is complete with its original solid brass lock, and also its original brass piano stop hinge. This prevents the lid from falling right back.
The bottom of the box still has its original gorgeous watered silk covering. This is a beautiful deep purple shade.
The original key is still with this box. It has an old 'kite' standard stamp and is also stamped BRITISH MAKE.
The entire interior is completely original. It has a lift out storage tray with multiple compartments, plus two ring storage sections. Beneath the tray is a further larger single compartment.
The lift out tray has 3 compartments, with the centre back compartment having a beautiful flapped lid. The lid and exterior walls of the tray, are finished with the same leather that is on the exterior of the box.
All of the compartments and ring storage sections, have beautiful peach coloured watered silk linings. The bottom of the storage tray has the same deep purple watered silk covering as the bottom of the box.
The inside of the lid has a watered silk panel, with an elasticated watered silk pouch. This adds even further storage space to the interior. The pouch has beautiful gathering and is very nicely stitched.
Watered silk is an expensive variety of silk, and it shows that the box is of high quality manufacture.
This beautiful box is in excellent condition for its 70 plus years of age. There are a few small light water marks to the leather on the lid and minor wear to the leather in general. None of this is in any way unsightly.
The interior silk linings are in very good condition with no splits or fraying. They have some tiny speckles of foxing and a few minor stains.
All of the above is as we'd expect on a genuine old box which has been loved and used for its purpose.
The hinge and lock are functioning perfectly and the key locks the box securely.
