This is a beautiful large Victorian jewellery box, dating to 1880-1900.
This box has a lovely Rosewood veneer which has beautiful figuration and a warm rich colour.
The front has superb inlay decoration and there is a decorative bone roundel to the centre of the lid.
The decoration to the front consists of brass inlaid scrolling vines, and pretty inlaid Mother of Pearl and Abalone shell flowers/leaves.
There is a beautiful Mother of Pearl escutcheon to the keyhole with further brass inlay beneath.
The box is complete with its original brass lock and original brass 'stop' hinges. These prevent the lid from falling back.
The bottom of the box has a new green felt covering. This will protect the surfaces of your furniture.
Please note there is no key with this box.
The interior has a single storage compartment which is deep and very large. It is extremely roomy and will hold a vast amount of jewellery.
The compartment and also the inside of the lid, have been newly relined with quality, heavy duty, embossed red paper. This is textured and has a fine crosshatch pattern.
This wonderful box is in lovely condition for its 100 plus years of age. It is structurally sound and all of its inlay is present. There is minor wear to the Mother of Pearl around the keyhole.
There is minor age related wear and superficial fine scratches to the veneer. A few small pieces of veneer are missing but these are barely noticeable. They are missing from inconspicuous areas at the back and bottom corners of the body of the box.
There has been a minor repair to a small section of the wood directly in front of the lock. This cannot be seen when the lid is closed.
The hinges are still firmly attached and in perfect working order. As stated earlier there is no key with this box. We do not know if the lock is functional.
Please use the following measurements to ensure the box is the right size for your requirements.
27.5 by 20.3cm with an 8.2cm depth.
