19th Century Mother of Pearl Jewellery Box
A superb mother of pearl jewellery box dating from the mid Victorian period. This virtually square box has a chamfered top with vacant cartouche, working lock with key and rests on a chamfered base. The hinged top lifts to reveal a dramatic rich purple silk lining. The condition of this antique jewellery box is very good, there are minor chips as can be expected on an item one hundred and sixty years old, these do not detract from the appearance and are clearly shown in the photographs. This 19th century jewellery box has a very generous capacity making it practical as well as elegant, glamourous and luxurious. A wonderful gift.
