Antique 19th Century very ornate and spectacular hand carved wooden and gilt jewellery box. The box is wonderfully carved and is covered in gilt.
The box is hand carved on the top and sides with leaves and flowers, a sun around the keyhole and 2 hounds on the front, a hound on each side and 2 birds and one hound on the back. On the top/lid is a raised cartouche with an intricate temple or palace image with leaves and flowers around it. Around the edge of this on the edges of the lids are two hounds front and back and two birds on each side. Box is 21cm long, 9cm high, 15cm wide.
The box has a red velvet inline on the inside of the lid and also the bottom of the box which is very worn and faded on both and has some marks like some one has drawn on the lining at the top. The box itself is in excellent condition and so is the gilt.
The box is missing its key. I also think it is early 19th Century but could be older. It certainly smells very old!
