Description
If you like your antique boxes to be in very good condition with a high degree of original features this item is worthy of consideration. Made during the mid Victorian period. Veneered with rosewood. No missing or replaced veneer. Original inlaid Mother of Pearl escutcheon. The lid closes perfectly square on the original hinges. Original lock. Key for decorative purposes only. Side sprung drawer accessed by removing a brass locking rod located to the box interior. All velvet, lining and dividers are in superb condition. Other than the various accessories to the central lid within the tray every aspect of the box interior is original and complete. The tray features side hoop brass handles. Three embossed velvet lids complete with the original Mother of Pearl knobs. Slight wear to some of the velvet but still all fully intact with no tears. Matching pair of small containers with silver plated lids. To the rear of the tray is a box width section comprising 5 sections. Small central padded velvet topped section, 4 sections accommodating two matching pairs of containers, two with glass stoppers, two with silver plated lids. All containers throughout are in excellent condition, void of chips and fractures to the glass, void of any wear through to the silver plated lids. Storage section beneath the tray in extremely clean condition. The lining and fitting to the lid interior is in exceptional condition. Embossed velvet fronted panel that can be released via a swing clasp to access a ‘love letter’ envelope to the back. Both side folds of the envelope are fully intact and the interior of the envelope is in spotless condition. Recess behind the panel that accommodates the original rosewood framed mirror in Far better condition than expected with no chips or fractures and little to no loss of silvering. Sadly, more often than not vanity/dressing boxes are stripped of the containers as many traders believe greater profit can be made by selling the containers and the box separately. It seems a great pity to split up an item that has done so well to remain together for 100+++ years for the sake of a few £££’s!! This box could be used as a jewellery box as it stands or the containers removed and stored safely if more storage space were to be required whilst at the same time preserving the ‘complete’ item for future generations. Given the condition and degree of original features (even all pull tabs are still present and intact) I think it fair to state that this item has had little to no use over 150 or so years and comes highly recommended.
