*** DONATED ***
This beautiful box has been donated to raise funds for a family local to us. They very sadly lost their son last week.
Love and blessings.
This is a beautiful Egyptian jewellery box, dating to the 1970s/1980s. It it hand made and has an abundance of hand painted, inlaid, and applied decoration.
This box has an eye catching pyramid design. It has inlaid Mother of Pearl slab decoration, large surface applied Egyptian Kings/Pharaohs, and surface applied Egyptian hieroglyphs such as Ankhs, Urns, Lotus Flowers and Birds. These are all made of thick coloured resins. The angular sides and edges are also made of resin.
There is a large triangular door to the front with a nicely turned wooden knob. The bottom of the box has a hand stained finish.
The box is large and weighty, and of sound structure.
The interior is made of wood and has two drawers with single compartments. These are both lined with red brushed felt. It has decorative hand painted Egyptian scenes upon black lacquered backgrounds, and the surrounding wood has been stained. All of the interior has a protective varnished finish.
This box is in very good vintage condition. There are a few tiny pieces of the Mother of Pearl inlay missing, and a few small pieces of resin missing at the bottom of the box to the front.
These small flaws are not overly noticeable. In our opinion they add character to the box, as it was made to appear old from the start. Please see image 4 where the missing pieces of resin have been highlighted.
Other than the above there are a few runs within the varnished finish of the interior. All of the painted decoration is still present and vibrant.
