This is a beautiful, antique French jewellery box with silk on silk hand embroidery in a pretty floral design. It's made from ebonised black wood and closes with a delicate and attractive clasp at the front. The silk on the outside of the box is a subtle golden beige colour whilst the inside is a glorious mustard gold silk that's beautifully padded.
It's a truly luxurious piece that likely dates from around the late 19th century, possibly earlier. There are some small signs of wear but it's in great condition for a piece of its age. The box measures 32cm long, 21cm wide and 14cm high.
