The actual carcass of the box is made from solid mahogany then over veneered in coromandel and is very heavy. The box also has original Brahma locks, on for the top and one for the bottom draw. The figuring on this box is just superb. The front loading draw opens and closes perfectly.
The hinges and lock are original to the box , but sadly the top catch is a later Victorian replacement which does not have any locking pins. The top catch could do with a replacement at some stage although blends with the box at the moment and we think does not detract to much. Difficult to appreciate until you see it in front of you. IM PRETTY SURE THAT YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED. Box retains the original lock, hinges.And later top catch minus pins. Supplied with a silk tassel and Victorian Brahma key that sadly does not lock the box and is supplied and described as being decorative only. YOU ONLY GET THIS TYPE OF QUALITY FROM US. Interior that has been relined in expensive. Material of the highest quality.
All the added dividers within the top section and bottom draw can be repositioned or removed if desired. Eneath the base of the box has also been lined in velvet to stop any scratches to other surfaces.
