Inlaid rosewood jewellery box suitable for use by either a lady or gentleman. Made during the 1830’s. No missing or replaced veneer. Rounded edges with solid rosewood inserts that not only enhance the appearance but also help to protect the vulnerable edges against damage through end grain lifting. Inlaid brass strips to the top and front with pierced roundels to the corners. Inlaid brass escutcheon and top handle……All inlays are original, complete and in excellent condition. The lid closes perfectly square. Fine hairline fracture to the veneer but as can be seen from the many photographs it does little to detract from what is a fine looking piece and it is still rock solid. Gilt embossed leather panel to the lid interior free of tears and complete with the original pull tab and top swing clasp. Please note the quality of the gilt tooling. When the swing clasp is released the panel folds forward to provide access to a storage envelope. Both side folds of the envelope are still fully intact and the interior of the envelope features the original makers label that reads ‘Greens 168 Oxford Street Maker to the Royal Family’. The hinges and lock are in very good condition and a replacement working key is supplied. The solid mahogany tray is I believe a replacement and is in excellent condition. Additional storage beneath the tray. An attractive box of sound construction that lends itself to a wide range of uses.
