This box has a wonderful 'Birds Eye' Maple effect finish, and a stunning inlaid effect on the lid. This decorative inlaid effect on the lid, features beautiful flowers surrounded by a chevron frame.

The box has lovely gold metal hinges and matching gold metal handles on its drawer.

The Interior

The interior has a large fixed tray at the top, with several compartments plus a ring storage section.  Beneath is a drawer with a large single compartment.  There is further storage within the inside of the lid which comprises of gold plastic hooks and an elasticated pouch.

The compartments in the tray are various sizes and hence perfect for different types of jewellery. The small square compartments are ideal for small pieces of jewellery such as earrings and pendants, and the larger compartments are ideal for chains, bracelets and brooches.  The larger compartment within the drawer is a good size for watches, bangles and beads etc.  Chains can also be hung upon the hooks within the lid.

All of the compartments, plus the inside of the lid, have soft brushed felt linings.  These are a light beige in colour.


Vintage, 1970s/1980s.


This beautiful box was made by the renowned jewellery box manufacturer, Mele.  This company is long established and well known for its high quality jewellery boxes.  They went into production in 1912 and are still going strong today!


This wonderful box is in excellent condition for its 35 to 45 years of age.  It is structurally sound and has no nasty knocks or scratches.  There is only very minor light surface wear present, in just a few areas, along the edges of the lid.

The interior linings are in superb condition on the whole, just minor light marks here and there, and a small stain in the drawer.  This is right at the back of the drawer and so is not overly noticeable.
