Watch & Jewellery Box
From our Jewellery Box collection, we are pleased to offer this Victorian Coromandel Jewellery Box. The Jewellery Box of rectangular form veneered in exotic Coromandel with a brass vacant initial plaque to the lid and matching brass circular escutcheon to the front. When opened the Jewellery Box reveals the customised black and gold cushioned velvet lining with ‘watches’ text vertically down each side along with two cufflink partitions, one to each side perfect for storing cufflinks upright or rings. The top tray can be removed via the two metal tabs, one on each side to access further storage beneath. Next to the locking plate, a small pin can be removed to open the sping loaded hidden drawer which has three further elongated partitions. The Jewellery Box dates to the middle of the Victorian period circa 1875 during the reign of Queen Victoria.
The Jewellery Box comes complete with working lock and tasselled key.
