Not to be confused with the modern reproductions, this is either a late 19th century or very early 20th century piece. Very high quality and most likely unique.
Has a beautiful traditional swallow design on the lid and has had a foliate design around the outside. Box has a bottom draw, sectioned area on the top and that removes to reveal a larger space.Box measurements: 305 x 156 x 235mm. Condition report: wear, marks, surface scratches some small chips scuff marks on the tray from being pulled out and put back in and would benefit from a quick clean. Nothing major and personally I see the above as character. Feedback says it all really.
I aim to offer a speedy and efficient service and take pride in supplying top quality. My descriptions are accurate as possible but please feel free to ask on anything not mentioned or for more pictures. I appreciate that cash can be a issue!
