Description
Inlaid Victorian figured walnut jewellery box in superb condition. Attractive grain. Contrasting ebony edges. Inlaid brass cartouche and escutcheon with attractive Tunbridge Style surrounds. All veneer, edging and inlays are original, complete and in perfect condition. The lid closes square and true on the original brass hinges. Original lock with a replacement working key supplied. As attractive as the box interior is, it is the standard and quality of the interior that sets this box a few notches above most similar boxes of the style and period. The interior has been very skilfully refurbished and is in superb condition. The person that did the work obviously took considerable pride in his/her work. It is not that often that antique boxes are relined with velvet and gilt embossed leather. Please note the extent of the gilt tooling to the leather frame of the rouched panel to the lid interior. I would suggest that most restorers would simple have embossed 1 perhaps 2 lines rather the 5 that feature on this item. There is a sprung drawer to the front of the box that is released by pressing down on the original fitting inlaid between the two lid hinges. The drawer springs opens nicely and closes perfectly square. The drawer interior in common with the upper storage section is lined throughout with leather with velvet to the base and sub-divided into 10 sections. The dimensions of the sections in the drawer are 9cm x 5cm x 4cm deep, the upper storage sections, 9.5cm x 5cm x 4.5cm deep. Please note the nice finishing touch of the gilt embossed upper edges to complement the gilt to the lid interior……a mark of the attention to detail and skills of the person that did the refurbishment…..this was no quick fix!!! A superb box, approaching 150 years old that should be good for many generations to come with generous storage capacity. Try finding similar in terms of age, condition, style and quality. Suitable for use by a lady or gentleman. Highly Recommended Unpacked weight 2.4Kg
