    fine quality stationery box. unusual features. c1880

    A fine quality stationery box with some unusual features. The box was made during the Gothic revival period towards the end of the 1800’s and is possibly of French origin. The box is all original and complete with a working key. It is in excellent condition. Unusually, instead of walnut or coromandel, this particular example is veneered with rosewood, has steel domed top fixings set with brass ‘cups’ and large ‘split’ side handles with the brass decoration extending down the full depth to the rear of the box. The steel top fixings contrast well and resemble black stone in appearance. The edges of the box are in perfect condition. The original base covering is in remarkable condition and the veneer sports the all important unspoilt patina. Lid closes perfectly square. The hinges and lock are a cut above most featuring engraved patterns. The interior also differs considerably from most boxes of the style and period insofar that it features ‘faux rosewood’ lining and dividers and is certainly more robust than most stationery boxes of the period. An attractive item in grand condition and one that represents an excellent investment. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
    A detailed description and/or further numerous photographs are available upon request.
