Mid 1800’s inlaid rosewood jewellery box equally suitable for use by a lady or gentleman. All veneer is original. Complete and in very fine condition. Inlaid Mother of Pearl cartouche and escutcheon complemented by pierced Mother of Pearl roundels with veneer centres. Inlaid pewter strips to the top and front. Original 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 2 or 3 gilt borders rather than the 5 that features 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 to the 4 storage sections. Metal side handles to the tray assist to access the storage area beneath that is lined throughout with velvet. As previously stated, this box would be equally suitable for a lady or gentleman. Compare the quality and finishing to modern produced boxes. Unpacked weight 2Kg
