The underside of the lid and interior of the box are lined with panels of box wood. The box has been decorated in the Pietra Dura technique, with black marble panels inlaid with different coloured stones creating a delicate floral and leaf pattern. Each of these panels is different and all hand-made. The box stands on four turned ebony bun feet and is in good original condition.

Georgian Antiques was founded in 1978 by John Dixon's brother Padriac in a small shop at Jocks Lodge, Meadowbank in Edinburgh, with John joining the business after finishing college in 1981. The business grew so rapidly, they couldn't keep up with their inventory needs. Their goal has been to create a one-stop-shop where designers can complete an entire project from lighting to furniture to accessories. Scotland's largest antiques warehouse is located in a converted whiskey bond in historic Leith Edinburgh. With 50,000sq ft over five floors we offer a wide range of quality Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian furniture, as well as continental and small decorative items. Our stock is constantly changing.
