Fine quality ladies vanity – dressing box in good condition made during the mid 1800’s. Measures approximately 12” x 9” x 6”. Unspoilt patina. Even colour and grain (no unsightly light bleaching). Inlaid triple pewter bands to the top and front with Mother of Pearl cartouche and escutcheon. Top closes square and true. Impressive interior with gilt embossed top edges to the tray and rear dividers complementing the gilt edging to the lid interior and gilt embossed ‘frame’ to the drop forward velvet panel. To the back of the panel is a ‘love letter’ envelope that is in excellent condition. Both side folds are still fully intact and the interior looks to be in unused condition. Further space behind the panel for a few more papers/photographs etc. All lining throughout the box is in very good condition with some minor wear to one of the small jar sections. Removable tray with additional storage space beneath. All of the four lids feature embossed velvet tops….three with Mother of Pearl knobs with the largest lid having hoops to retain manicure accessories…..The retaining hoops indicate some wear but far less than the norm. The manicure items are I believe replacements and include a matching set of three items featuring hallmarked solid silver handles and top for the nail ‘buffer’. All four storage sections beneath the lids have the remains of the original foil lining, some wear but far more of the original foil than the norm.(See photograph 10). The other two velvet sections comprise of a needle wallet and padded pin cushion. Four ‘open’ sections containing jars comprising of two matching pairs. All glass is in very good condition with equal wear through of the original snug fitting silver plated tops. It is quite remarkable given the age of this item that with the exception of a TINY hole in the pin cushion that ALL of the velvet is tear free and perhaps even more surprising that the gilt embossed side tabs on the tray are still fully intact with barely any signs of wear of the gilt embossing!!! Obviously the item has seen little in the way of use by the many generations of previous owners. Original hinges and lock with a working key supplied (A tad fiddly but DOES work). A fine piece of early Victorian woodenware.
