Antique Jewellery Box Vanity Box Theatre Box Antique Wooden Box With Key. This unique theatre box was in a sad, and unloved condition, but has recently been transformed into a useful jewellery or vanity box in the style of a theatre. This antique wooden jewellery box has a beautiful floral Mother of Pearl inlay on the lid and front, with matching escutcheon. There is a name etched into the centre inlay (see photos) of the original owner. There is a lift-out tray with ribbon handles, a lift up lidded compartment at the centre of the stage, with an antique boot hook, accessories, with mother of pearl handles.
There is a row of seats opposite the stage and two balconies either side acting as small compartments to hold small items such as earrings etc. There is a mirror inside the lid with pale blue cotton velvet curtains either side. The mirror is sadly cracked. The beautiful detailed paper lining on the inside of the box and pull out tray is completely original and has therefore been kept. General signs of age and use over the years, with some internal marks and pulls that can be seen on the original paper lining due to age and use.
There is also a crack in the bottom, see photos. External there are the usual signs of age and use over the years which is to be expected. There are a few dings and scratches.
