A stunning and very fine Papier Mache jewellery cabinet dating to c.1860, mid-Victorian in era.
The box is inlaid all over with tiny tiles of Mother of Pearl including the interior on the front of the drawers. The front has two raised panels depicting the dog Judge. The raised panel to the lid and two side panels are hand painted with Spaniels. The box has hand-painted highlights and is smothered in bright gilding.
There are two keys included, one for the lidded compartment and one to the front of the cabinet, locking the doors. The top and drawers have been re-finished with a cream faux suede and a navy blue velvet; the top drawer with a purple velvet including a ring bank that will accommodate around eight rings and a central compartment for a pocket watch, a perfect place for that special bracelet.
A magnificent box in excellent condition. The footprint measures 12" x 9 1/2" and standing 12 1/2" tall.
