Fine quality inlaid rosewood jewellery box in very good condition. Believed to have been made during the mid Victorian period. No missing or replaced veneer. The inlays are exquisite comprising of extremely intricate fine brass outer inlays along with floral features comprising of brass, Mother of Pearl and abalone shell to provide a splash of colour. Please note the use of two different colours of the brass, one being darker and more gold like in appearance. The inlays are in excellent condition. The lid closes square and true on the original hinges. Original lock with a working key supplied. Original removable tray with additional storage space beneath. With the exception of the tray interior and the central panel to the lid interior all lining is original, complete and in fine condition. The replacement panels to the tray and lid panel were obviously selected with care to complement the colouring of the lid panel frame which is certainly original and quite unusual having the appearance of a theatre stage. The tassels are original and in very good condition. The panel folds forward upon releasing a swing clasp to the top centre to give access to a ‘love letter’ envelope…..very clean interior with both side folds still fully intact. Clearly a fine quality piece with superior inlays. Would perhaps make a particularly ideal gift for someone involved in the world of theatre. Unpacked weight 1.6Kg
