Victorian fitted dome top stationery box that shouts antique charm. Adorned with pierced and engraved brassware to All aspects of the box exterior rather than only to the top and front as with most antique boxes that feature similar decoration. Though generally the appearance of boxes of the style can be marred by staining of the veneer immediately surrounding the brass decoration in this particular case the staining coupled with the mellow patina of the walnut veneer Is what gives this box that ‘x factor’ that is sought after by many keen collectors and admirers of antique woodenware/furniture. All veneer and brassware is original and complete. The lid closes square on the original hinges both stamped ‘ E Moore Registered Sept 271843’. Original lock with a replacement working key supplied. Original ruched velvet to the lid interior totally free of tears and wear through. The base comprises of seven storage sections, one of the dividers has been replaced by a previous owner and a good job was done.
