This is a beautiful large antique jewellery box, dating to 1880/1890. It has a beautiful Walnut veneer and is complete with its original working lock.
This box has a beautiful Walnut veneer which is in wonderful condition. It has a high polished glossy finish and superb figuration.
The lid has a polished white metal handle and plate, and a matching polished white metal escutcheon to the lock.
The box is complete with its original brass lock and original brass stop hinges. These prevent the lid from falling back. The key is a replacement which has been fitted to the lock.
The bottom of the box has its original hessian covering.
The interior has a large deep storage compartment and is very roomy. The base of the compartment and the inside of the lid, have their original padded velvet panels. The interior walls have patterned paper linings. These are not original but are fairly old replacement linings. The compartment is big enough to store a good amount of jewellery, including large pieces such as bangles and watches.
This wonderful old box is in great condition for its 125/135 years of age. The Walnut is beautiful with only minor wear from age and use. There is one tiny piece of veneer missing to the back of the lid on the bottom left corner. This is hardly noticeable.
There is light tarnish to the white metal handle/plate and escutcheon.
The interior velvet panels are still in lovely clean condition with no splits or fraying. The paper linings are also very good with no tears.
There is some wear to the original black painted finish of the interior edges.
The hessian cover on the bottom of the box has wear, predominantly around the edges.
