This beautiful antique wood & brass jewelry box is made of ebonized wood and has gilded brass panels with bas relief cherubs and mythological people & animals and designs on it. It measures aprox 8.5" x 5.5" x 5 tall and rests on 4 ball feet. The inside has a beveled mirror and blue silk tufted lining.
It has a panel on top that is engraved 1881. The condition for its age is great, though the beveled mirror has some wear and there are some stains on the sides of the silk lined interior that I believe can be cleaned. There is also a very small piece of wood missing from one side (as shown) and a few light dings on the wood. Amazingly, it has the original key with a tag that has what I believe to be German writing on it.
