19c English Jewelry Box, Mother-Of-Pearl
A beautiful English Mother-of-Pearl Jewelry box with bun feet. The box has been decorated in the diamond inlay pattern that shows off the lovely glow of the iridescent colors in the mother-of-pearl.
The box is lined in the original silk velvet `tiffany' soft-blue. This beautiful box has a silver plaque on the lid with the script initials of M E M. The box measures 2 1/8" high, 5" long and is 3 5/16" wide. The lid has a slightly slope/canter to the design. The lock and hinges are original to this wonderful English (Regency or Victorian era) elegant box.
There are no visible repairs to this jewelry box, on the left hand, corner to the tip, there is a nick. All is right with this lovely hand made mother-of-pearl jewelry box. Sorry no key has been found but one could be made.
