Description
Please see my stock page for the largest selection of jewellery boxes available on this website. This is a large jewellery box suitable for a wide range of purposes for use by either a lady or gentleman. The style is certainly heavily influenced by the Tunbridge Ware box makers of the Georgian/Regency period. Please note the perspective cubes to the top and the Van Dyke style inlays to All aspects of the base section. Aside from the parquetry veneers and the various inlaid strips and bands the main veneer featured is burr walnut. The lid closes perfectly square and true. Hinges and lock in excellent condition with a replacement working key supplied. The box interior differs from the norm insofar it is veneered throughout with walnut, all original, all in excellent condition with the lid interior ‘book matched’ to provide a particularly pleasing effect. The removable tray is more robust in construction that usual for a box of the period. It is very practical as All of the dividers can simple be lifted out/replaced so as to provide a considerable variation of options in terms of the dimensions of the numerous storage sections to suit changing requirements. Approximately a half of the dividers have been replaced but the work has been extremely well using solid mahogany and obviously picking up on the original ‘v’ cuts that existed. The box exterior has been previously restored as can be seen from the numerous photographs provided. The restoration to the top does notice more from certain viewing angles but it is fair to state that whoever did the work must have exercised skills and patience and there is no doubting that it is a fine looking item. The price reflects the restoration.I think it important to provide comprehensive descriptions, including defects rather than expecting potential buyers to rely upon photographs alone hence my descriptions tend to be quite lengthy. Given the style and features of the exterior and interior this must have been quite an expensive item when made.
