Description
If you like antique boxes in what looks to be unused condition then this item is certainly worthy of consideration. Believed to be of French origin and made during the late 1800’s other than possibly the key every aspect of the box is original and in superb condition. Inlaid escutcheon and cartouche with the latter with ornate surround. Highly attractive veneer to all aspects with an unspoilt patina. Ebony edge trim to the top and front featuring white filled etched lines, tiny triangular pieces of metal to complement the escutcheon and cartouche and to add a splash of colour, small strips of abalone shell. The lid closes perfectly square. Hinges and lock in superb condition. The tiny key operates extremely well to secure the lid. My only very slight concern is that a very large degree of similar French boxes of the period had a lock mechanism that gave the choice to double turn the key whilst this key only turns once…..Perhaps I am mistaken. The entire box interior is in outstanding condition. Spotless interior surfaces with no indications of use. Removable tray with storage space beneath. The tray is constructed of ‘mock’ rosewood with metal trim and sunken side hoops handles. Silk and velvet lining to the 5 storage sections. The largest section is recessed to accommodate a pocket watch or locket up to approximately 40mm diameter. ‘Strip’ storage section to accommodate earrings or perhaps cufflinks. The style and layout of the box is such that it is equally suited for use by a lady or gentleman. Try finding another of the style and period in such exceptional condition. Very Highly Recommended be that for a keen collector or anyone out there that likes antique woodenware in outstanding condition.
