This ornate box has six 5 x 5 sides, and is 10 ½ wide by 5 ½ high overall. It is the correct size for a collar box but could have been used for jewelry or valuables. Exotic wood inlays were used for the marquetry and the box was trimmed with molded wood edges that were made of combined strips of contrasting wood. It is in good sturdy condition overall.
The original velvet interior shows moderate signs of age. At one time, there may have been an interior tray. The old finish shows a warm patina with small marks, scuffs and stains.
There is a small age-crack in the front lower corner. It has its original lock but no key. Please look at the photographs as they are considered part of the description. I guarantee it to be old and as described. The item "Rare Hexagon Victorian Antique Jewelry Valuables Collar Box w Exotic Marquetry" is in sale since Tuesday, August 15, 2017.
