This is a beautiful Italian jewellery box, dating to the 1920/30s. It was made in Sorrento and is in complete original condition.
This box is made of solid wood and has a beautiful lightly varnished veneer. It has a colourful marquetry scene on the lid, made from several varieties of wood. This has created a beautiful coastal scene, probably depicting Sorrento. There is also a beautiful checkered inlaid frame around the edges of the lid.
The box has a beautiful streamlined shape and lovely curved sides. It is complete with its original stop hinges which prevent the lid from falling back.
The interior has a single storage compartment. The walls of the compartment are lined with satin and there is a padded quilted panel in its base. All of this is original. The colour of the satin is pale blue.
There is a lovely inset mirror to the inside of the lid. This is surrounded by fine inlaid frames which have a painted blue finish. The inside of the lid is veneered.
This wonderful old box is in original condition throughout. It is completely untouched with no restoration or refurbishment. It is now around 90-100 years old, and as such it has some age related wear and marks.
The exterior is still in lovely condition with all of the marquetry/inlay being present and intact. Some of the varnish to the veneer has worn thin, resulting in the wood looking slightly faded in a few areas. There is a fine split to the veneer on the back of the box which is hardly noticeable.
The interior satin has some stains/foxing, but is still neatly fitted and has no splits. The stains are as we'd expect on a box of this age which has been loved and used for its purpose. This adds charm to the box in our opinion, but please take this into consideration before purchasing the box. Stained interiors do not suit all tastes.
The mirror has some blemishes but no cracks or chips. It is still securely seated. There are some fine hairline splits to the veneer around the mirror.
Please use the following measurements to ensure the box is the right size for your requirements.
16.0 by 10.2cm with a 3.0cm depth.
