A very good brass-bound rosewood fitted jewellery box in superb original condition.

The upper tray lifts out to reveal the vacant interior below, also covered in finest maroon velvet. The interior of the lid is decorated with a leather embossed and gilded panel with ruched velvet inside.

The exterior surfaces are all in very good condition with brass bindings to the corners and escutcheon, plus a blank central cartouche (ideal for personalising as a gift, or for your family crest). The base is covered in green baize for protection. The box comes complete with its original working key.
