This is a lovely quality morocco leather jewellery box dating from the first decade of the 20th century, Edwardian. The leather is a maroon colour, dark red. The box has a silver plated top handle, a very sturdy piano hinge and a high quality bramah type lock with the working key.
The interior is lined with black leather and beautiful red satin silk and velvet, all the original, and in lovely condition. There are two trays so there is plenty of room for jewellery.
A truly smart and useful antique jewellery box.
Measures 8 inches (22.5cm) x6.25 inches (15.75cm) x 4.75inches (12cm).
There is a little wear to the silver plate on the top handle so that the brass is showing through slightly. The leather has acquired an antique patina, a little darkening due to handling over the years and very tiny indentations. Please examine the photographs to help make your assessment of the box’s appearance and condition. Please email if you would like further photographs or information.
