This is a beautiful high-quality vintage jewellery box in a novel book-shaped form. It is beautifully inlaid and lined.
This box has a very stylish book-shaped form with the lid being the front of the book.
There are very pretty marquetry inlaid Roses on the lid, consisting of several varieties of wood. Surrounding the Roses is a beautifully inlaid frame, also made up of different wood varieties.
The spine of the book has a beautiful curved shape. It has bands at the top and bottom which are made from a darker wood and there is further inlay decoration at the top of the spine.
The front of the box has a lovely concave shape.
The wood around the sides of the box has been skillfully chosen to have a specific 'lined' grain. This beautiful grain gives the appearance of pages and has been cleverly incorporated to further enhance the book design. This, as well as the superb marquetry inlay, is indicative of high-quality workmanship.
The box is complete with its original hinges and feet. The feet have felt pads which will protect the surfaces of furniture.
The interior has a single storage compartment. This has its original satin linings which are a beautiful chocolate shade. The linings around the sides are plumply padded and the lining to the base is both padded and beautifully quilted. Padded linings to the sides of a compartment are indicative of a high-quality interior.
The box is in very good vintage condition. It has sound structure and no cracks.
All of the inlay is present and intact.
The hinges are secure and in good working order.
The interior satin is still in lovely condition. It is clean, neatly fitted and has no splits or fraying. There are a few teeny pulls which are barely visible.
