This is a lovely old morocco leather jewelry box dating from the early part of the 20th century. All original inside and out. The leather has a textured finish and is a very dark maroon/purple, almost black in color. It has sturdy brass stop hinges and escutcheon, with a working lock and nice little original key.
Inside is the lovely original lining of watered or moire silk and velvet in a pale yellow/cream color. The box is a handy size and could be used for travelling.
It measures 8 inches (20cm) x 4.75 inches (12cm) x 2.5 inches (7.5cm) high.
The box is in a very good condition. There is some bumpiness to the surface of the leather here and there, mostly on the top, but this blends into the texture of the leather and is part of its antique patina. There is a slight indentation on the base (on the underside of the box).
I have included lots of photographs so please examine these to help you make your assessment of the box’s appearance and condition, and if you need further photographs or information please do not hesitate to contact me.
