LOVELY 19C FIGURED WALNUT INLAID ANTIQUE JEWELLERY BOX - FAB INTERIOR. Very large at 14 inches long.
19c figured walnut veneered inlaid restored and repolished jewellery box. FULLY LOCKS and double locks with relative ease.One old small veneer repair to the rear bottom right edge and another at the bottom rear right side edge. These are small and nothing to worry about. Its in otherwise fantastic condition. What makes this box special is its size at 14 inches long. Very few of these boxes at this size where made and even fewer in this condition survive today.
The silk fixed buttoned interior lid backing board is original to the box and in very good condition with very few marks that I can see. Its lovely to be able to retain this piece of history with the box. The rest of the box has been relined to blend match. No missing or replaced inlay on the banding.Wonderful inlaid banding consisting of fruitwood, boxwood, and ebony, all in very good condition with no repairs. Further inlaid with boxwood, tulipwood, and ebony to the central cartouche with a minor nibble repair on the right side and slight nibble repair on the inlaid keyhole escutcheon which are nothing. The pictures really do not do it justice. ITS A TERRIFIC RARE BOX.
