Gorgeous antique Victorian sewing / jewellery / needlework box. The exterior is covered with leather and gilt and Mother of pearl decoration which would have shimmered and glistened against the candlelight and a leather interlaced handle.
The box is silk lined and in great condition. There is a push button catch to the front which is in working order. The lid is slightly warped to the right side when the box is closed (see photos). But otherwise is great condition for it's age of around 180 years old.You will not find another like this on the market. This would have been used by a wealthy Victorian lady and cherished as it would have contained many of her sewing items which she would have used daily. External measurements are 15.5cmx 7.5cm x 8cm high. (Measurements and weights where specified are approximate). An unquestionably exquisite and fine addition for any uncompromising collector or as a display piece.
