This is a superb high quality antique jewellery box, dating to 1900. It is complete with its original working lock and key.
This box is made of solid Mahogany and has a beautiful Satinwood veneer. It also has Kingwood banding on the lid and all four sides. There is lovely gilt stringing on both sides of the Kingwood, plus fine Ebony edging on the inside of the gilding.
The lid has a polished vacant brass cartouche, surrounded by a frame of Kingwood. The cartouche can be personalised with engraved names/dates if desired. Your local key cutter should provide an engraving service.
The box is complete with its original solid brass stop hinges. These prevent the lid from falling back. It is also complete with its original solid brass working lock and key.
The bottom of the box has a new felt covering which will protect the surfaces of furniture.
The interior has a single deep roomy storage compartment which is unlined. The Mahogany here has a beautiful rich colour and fabulous figuration, which is undoubtedly why the compartment was not lined. The same applies to the inside of the lid.
This wonderful box is in amazing condition with only minimal wear despite its age. It has so obviously been very well looked after.
The hinges are in perfect working order and the box is of sound structure.
The lock is currently in good working condition.
There is an old small repair to the top left rear corner, at the bottom of the lid. This is the only flaw with the box and it isn't overly noticeable. The overall appearance of this box is stunning and its quality is superb.
