Extremely attractive fine quality jewellery box made during the mid-late Victorian period in excellent condition. Ebony edge trim with particularly attractive grain with a nicely balanced combination of dark and golden tones. Inlaid to the top and front with Mother of Pearl and abalone, the latter providing a splash of colour that arguably surpasses and other form of inlay used on antique boxes of any period. All inlays, edging and veneer is original and in superb condition. The lid closes square and true on the original brass ‘stop’ hinges. Original lock with a replacement working key supplied. The box interior has been refurbished to a high standard befitting the item. Clearly whoever did the refurbishment has good taste, an eye for the finishing touch and had practicality for modern day use in mind. Please note the 15 sections to the tray, ideal for those smaller items of jewellery. Nice finishing touches of the silk covered edging of the tray and all dividers to complement the ruched silk panel within a silk covered frame to the lid interior and the 4 lidded sections with gilt ring pulls to the tray. Metal side handles on the tray to assist accessing the storage section beneath that features a lightly padded silk covered base. A most attractive and quite unusual piece of Victorian woodenware that displays beautifully that will command attention from all who see it. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Unpacked weight 1.7 Kg
