Pre Victorian rosewood jewellery box that oozes charm. Excellent unspoilt mellow patina. The photographs fail to reflect the patina and character of this item, it is certainly better than depicted!! Contrasting edge trim. All rosewood and trim is original and in extremely good condition. Stands on what is possible the original brass ball feet. They have not been cleaned to a gold like lustre as the patina does contribute to the charm of the item. Lid closes perfectly square on the original brass stop hinges. Original lock with what is possibly the working original key. Front drawer of solid mahogany with softwood base and hand cut dovetailed joints front and rear for strength and durability. Nice feature of the drawer standing slightly proud at the front (deliberate given what certainly looks to be the original ‘stops’ at the back of the box carcass. The marbled paper to the base of the drawer, the lid interior and the main storage area base are a later replacement, all in excellent condition, free of tears and wear. All of the dividers are original, are solid mahogany and can be easily removed should relining be required in years to come. Though simplistic in style this is an item that shouts ‘antique’ and is an item that would complement any setting…..and of course of practical modern day use by a lady or gentleman. Please note….Regretfully this item can only be delivered within EC membership countries only. Unpacked weight 1.4 Kg.
