This is a beautiful Victorian jewellery box, dating to 1870/80. It has a lovely thick Rosewood veneer with decorative Foliate Mother of Pearl Inlay, and beautiful silver metal stringing. The Rosewood has a beautiful rich colour and lovely figuration, and the Mother of Pearl has a gorgeous iridescent shimmer.
The interior has been completely refurbished.
It has a new French polished hardwood tray with multiple compartments.
These have new padded red satin panels and marbled cream paper linings. There is a single large compartment beneath the tray.
This and also the inside of the lid, have matching satin panels and linings.
The box has its original brass lock and original brass stop hinges which prevent the lid from falling back. It also has its original key. A red silk tassel has been attached to this to compliment the interior.
A new green felt cover has been added to the base, to protect the surfaces of your furniture.
This wonderful box is in excellent condition.
It is structurally sound and free from damage. There are some minor age related stress lines to the veneer, as you'd expect on a box which is 135/145 years old.
These are not overly obvious and add character to the box.
The Mother of Pearl inlay is still beautiful and intact, just very slight wear to a few pieces. The key is a tad fiddly but locks the box securely.
