Magnificent Antique English Trinity House Sewing / Spice Box c.1870

A fabulous English Trinity House box, always highly sought-after with their nautical theme and romantic story. These Trinity House boxes were made by Lighthouse owners (often in the Portsmouth area of the UK) and sold to owners and Captains of the ships.

This one is made from beautiful burl Walnut with a Walnut panel to the front, both the lid and front surrounded by inlaid parquetry or Tunbridge Ware borders. The top is inlaid with a majestic clipper ship with land in the distance with a lighthouse and flag poles on the headland.

Another feature of this gem is the interior's removable tray, the compartment lids all inlaid with nautical flags, the tray is fitted for a combination of spices and sewing surrounding a central pin cushion. All of the original blue and gold paper lining remains intact, the base and interior of the lid have been relined with navy blue velvet.

A stunning example in excellent condition measuring 13" x 8 3/4" x 6" tall. Complete with working tasseled key, which fits into heart shaped inlaid escutcheon.
