TERRIFIC RARE 19c BURR WALNUT INLAID ANTIQUE JEWELLERY
BOX - FAB INTERIOR
You are bidding on a WONDERFUL
LARGE Victorian walnut veneered inlaid restored and repolished jewellery box.
Dates approximately 1830/1860.
Really superb condition. This
is such a rare box. The style is not common and was probably a commission
piece. It has been very well looked after.
No missing or replaced veneer
No missing or replaced inlay.
The box is as good as it was
from the first day it was manufactured.
THIS REALLY IS A RARE BOX - one of the best we have
Difficult to fully appreciate
until you see it in front of you.
The inlay is terrific. Many
different inlayed fruitwoods have been used to the top and around the keyhole escutcheon.
Further inlaid with a chequered inlayed fruitwood and ebony banding. The outer banding
is cut from solid burr walnut. This in itself is very rarely seen on top
The box closes true flush and
A few tiny bruises but that's
expected with age.
The lock works but the internal
pins are loose and can slide across if the box is tilted, but this is quite
common and really is truly nothing to detract. The lock works well.
Boxes of this calibre are
becoming increasingly rare. I honestly don't think you will see another in such
condition as this.
I’M PRETTY SURE THAT YOU
WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.
Box retains the original
lock; top catch and stop hinges.
Supplied with a silk tassel
and Victorian key that FULLY LOCKS the
box. Instruction given once sold.
YOU ONLY GET THIS TYPE OF
QUALITY FROM US.
Comprising a wonderful interior that boasts a later
wooden tray finished to a superb standard that compliments. This has been
relined in expensive plush velvet material of the highest quality, the same as the interior of the box.
All the added dividers within
the tray can easily be repositioned or removed if desired. The tray can hold
many rings in an upright position.
Underneath the additional
tray and beneath the base of the box have also been lined in velvet to stop any
scratches to other surfaces.
A superb box, and would make a fantastic
believe at MTS that the Antique boxes we sell are as important as the item of
jewellery our customers buy.
