A very pleasing mid-19th century English mahogany lidded, two-section cutlery box with original red wool lining. A beautifully crafted piece with an attractive Chippendale-style handle.
This piece measures 14 3/4" long by 8 1/2" wide by 7 3/4" high to the top of the handle. It is in very good undamaged condition. There are no chips, cracks, deep scratches or repairs. The wood has a wonderful mellow patina and has obviously been lovingly cared for over the years.
