Very pretty small Victorian box with its original decorative interior. It contains a few bits and pieces and came with a little note (see the photograph) giving some of its history and stating that the box had been wrapped up and put away since 1909 but dates to circa 1880. The exterior of the box is veneered in walnut with lovely parquetry mosaic bands in the Tunbridge ware style. It has a nice little working key.
The interior looks striking with the original paper lining matching the blue satin silk on the compartment covers. Please look at the photographs to see the items that the box contains, which includes antique needles in their cases, pin wheel, leather purse, cotton reels etc.
The box is in very good condition as you should be able to see from the photographs. The interior paper lining and silk are very sound and clean. There is some wear to the base, underside of the box.
It measures 8 inches (20cm) x 5 inches (12.5cm) x 3.5 inches (8.5cm) high.
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.
