Description
Extremely attractive early Victorian rosewood jewellery box equally suitable for use by a lady or gentleman in superb condition. Highly attractive grain of a deep/rich colouring. This was a box that was built to last. Brass edge bound to All external edges to provide nigh on maximum protection and support. The edging is not the rather flimsy brass that is quite often seen on lesser quality antique quality boxes. Inlaid rosette style cartouche. All of the edging, the cartouche and the veneer are original, complete and in superb condition. The lid closes perfectly square. Original brass hinges and lock with a replacement working key supplied. The lid opens to reveal a very impressive interior. Whoever did the refurbishment obviously took his/her time and took pride in his/her work. Please note the extent of the gilt tooling to the leather frame that surrounds the ruched velvet panel. I would suggest that most people would have made do with 1 or 2 gilt borders on a frame of such width rather than the 5 on this item. Nice attention to detail with the gilt tooling to the top edges of the tray and all of the dividers to complement the lid panel. The tray and dividers are leather covered with velvet bases to the 8 storage sections, ideal for those smaller items of jewellery. The 6 larger sections measure 92mm c 55mm x 30mm deep. The two longer narrow sections 188mm x 37mm x 10mm…The bases are raised to assist removal of very small items. For gents…. the larger sections comfortably accommodate a 40mm diameter case wristwatch. Metal side handles to the tray assist to access the storage area beneath that is lined throughout with velvet for those larger items. A superb box of classic styling that displays beautifully, highly practical and built to last and last and last. Try finding a modern produced box of the build quality.
