A Jewellery Box by Erhard & Söhne of Schwäbisch Gmünd. Its constructed in Mahogany with an elaborate design on the lid and on each of the 4 legs. This is termed "Intarsia" and is a patented technique developed by Erhard & Söhne in the early 1900's whereby the brass is inlaid into the wood, similar to boulle which uses different materials. It has a domed, hinged lid and brass/bronze handles on either side.

The Box has a removable, pull-out drawer. There is a lock which has been removed from its holder and this need to be re-fitted and also to be supplied with a suitable key should this be required .

It measures 33 by 27 by 11 cm and weighs 2.6 Kg

The condition is good but could be improved by some minor restoration - a refitting of the lock, a polishing of the wood and replacement of a few small pieces of brass inlay. Fully restored, this would have an auction value of $2-3,000 as can be seen from recent auction sales of similar Erhard & Söhne boxes.
