Description

This attractive jewellery box / casket dates from the middle of the nineteenth century. It is of nice quality with a Braman patent lock. The box has a black leather exterior over a wooden frame, with brass fixings. The box retains what we believe to be its original working key - and the lock is designed that the box can only be opened with the key in the lock. Internally the box has a velvet-lined top and bottom. It retains its original lift-out sectionalised tray. There may originally have been a second tray on top of this, but we are not 100% sure of this, and only the one tray is now present.
