Description

Grand Victorian English jewellery boxes like this come along very rarely, this one having all the bells and whistles with secret compartments everywhere!
Made from exotic Coromandal, the box is fully brass bound, the lid inlaid with the original owners monogram, looks to be a V and B.
The lid lifts to reveal top-quality metalware fittings, the hinge to the right locking the lid in place; this hinge has to be squeezed to release the lid. The interior of the lid is fitted with a leather bound mirror. The top of the box has four compartments and a full width ring bank which can be removed with space below.
The front drops down revealing a velvet lined insert to sit jewellery. The top trays swivel to the sides revealing a further pair of trays with four shallow compartments each.
The nickel catch can then be released allowing these compartments to then swivel to the sides; each of these has a push button to the back releasing secret sprung drawers lined for rings and other jewels.
The leather lined interior has a further drawer to the back.
A true gem in superb condition complete with a working key. Victorian in era, dating to c.1860.
An impressive size measuring 13 1/2" x 10" x 8 1/2" while all closed up.
