Please see my stock page for one of the largest selection of jewellery boxes and writing boxes available on this website. If you have a lot of jewellery and like to have lots of sections to store them in then this box might well be the answer. Of very sound construction. Veneered with mahogany with solid ebony edging. The top is mahogany veneered that has been quartered, inlaid with contrasting strips slightly in from the edges with a inlaid figured walnut oval and floral inlay to the centre…..the photographs are superior to my attempt to describe in words. Inlaid brass escutcheon. Quite an unusual feature of one false drawer to one side to balance the appearance of the full box length drawer to the other…both have false inlaid brass escutcheons. Georgian style solid brass side handles and inlaid Tunbridge Ware style edging. All veneer, edging and all inlays are in excellent condition….all complete. The drawer is secured by the common method of a brass locking rod located to the box interior. Given that a working key is supplied for the main box lock all contents of the drawer and main storage area can be made secure. The drawer construction is worthy of a few words….solid oak with hand cut dovetailed joints akin to some Georgian boxes. The lid closes perfectly square. Hinges and lock in excellent condition. The box has been refurbished throughout by someone with a high degree of skill. Please note the extent of the gilt tooling to the leather frame that surrounds the ruched velvet panel to the lid interior. The main storage section comprises of 12 storage sections….velvet to the bases, all other surfaces covered with leather skilfully gilt embossed features to all of the top edges to complement the lid interior. The sections 8 sections measure approximately 115mm x 45mm, 4 sections measure approximately 115mm x 80mm. The tray is lined in the identical manner with 10 sections measuring approximately 10mm x 62mm. Depth of all sections are approximately 50mm. With 22 storage sections of such dimensions this box will accommodate a Lot of jewellery! I have never come across the likes before and it is extremely unlikely that I will do so again.
