This is a beautiful antique jewellery casket with a partially refurbished interior. It is Victorian and dates to 1870/1880.
The exterior has a Walnut veneer which has superb figuration and a nice light colour.
There is extremely ornate brass decoration and opaque white glass cabochons to the lid and front of the casket. The large brass feature to the centre of the lid has beautiful pierced detail, and the cabochons are smooth and glossy. All of the brass work is securely fixed with dark metal studs.
The casket is complete with its original brass hinges, original brass lock, and original brass key. This is a very pretty key with fancy detail.
The bottom of the casket has a new red felt covering which will protect the surfaces of furniture.
The interior has a single large deep compartment which has been beautifully refurbished by our skilled box restorer. It has a lovely new padded satin panel in the base and new paper linings to the walls.
The inside of the lid has its original padded panel which is covered with quality watered silk. The panel has a watered silk strip down the centre and small photos or notes can be tucked behind this. It also has loops which you could insert brooches into. There are new paper linings to the walls surrounding the panel.
The casket will tip back when the lid is opened UNTIL the compartment has jewellery inside it. This is due to the heavy brass decoration and studs on the lid. Please be careful when you unwrap the casket after delivery.

This fabulous casket is in excellent condition for its 130/140 years of age. It is structurally sound and has no loss of veneer.
There is some age related wear to the Walnut in some areas but nothing that is unsightly.
A few of the cabochons have small chips. These are not rough or overly noticeable.
The brass work to the bottom of the casket on the left hand side, is slightly misaligned.
The hinges and lock are in good working order and the casket locks securely.
The original satin to the inside of the lid is still beautiful and has no stains. It has some tiny minor pulls.
The new satin panel and paper linings are excellent, being new. The same applies to the felt on the bottom of the casket.
