Antique Mother of Pearl MOP Inlaid Rosewood Wooden Jewellery / Sewing Work Box. A box with intricate mother of pearl decoration, lead or pewter stringing to the edge.
It comes with its original tray which is in need of some TLC along with the drop down flap. I have included a number of photos and these probably describe the item better than I can and form part of the description.Everyone has different considerations when purchasing items and if you need any further information, please feel free to contact me and I will try to help. Condition: The box is in a reasonable condition but internally it is in need of a little restoration/tlc. The box is quite sound although there are some fine cracks appearing in the veneer at some of the joints.
The mother of pearl and pewter stringing is all in tact as is the rosewood veneer. It does have marks, knocks and scratches to the the outside from use including a small blister (possibly a cigarette burn) to the top along with a few lighter spots towards the front possibly caused by water.The internal tray appears to be original but the material is disintegrating, there may be one or more covers missing. The drop forward section to the lid is loose. No key and the lock is untested.
Size: 27.5cm x 20.5cm x 13cm (11" by 8" by 12.5 approx). I will try to answer questions as soon as possible, but this will normally be in the evening.
