This is a beautiful antique Victorian jewellery box, dating to 1870/1880.

The Exterior

This box has a beautiful Walnut veneer which has superb figuration. It has ornate brass decoration to the lid and front, and beautiful bezel set white glass cabochons.

The box has a beautiful Gothic design which was the height of Victorian fashion, following the death of Queen Victoria's beloved husband Prince Albert. During this sad period in Victoria's life, she had mourning jewellery and other commemorative items made, which were copied and became immensely popular.

The box is complete with its original brass hinges, lock and key.

The bottom of the box has a new red felt covering which will protect the surfaces of furniture.

The Interior

The interior has a single large storage compartment which is deep and spacious. This has been refurbished by our skilled box restorer. It has a beautiful new padded satin panel in the base and new high-quality paper linings.

The inside of the lid has its original padded panel which is covered with beautiful watered silk. The panel has a watered silk strip down the centre. Small photos or notes can be tucked behind this. It also has loops which you can insert brooches into. There are new paper linings to the walls inside the lid.

Note

The box will tip back when the lid is opened UNTIL the compartment has jewellery inside it. This is due to the weight of the brass decoration.
