ANTIQUE 19thC BURR WALNUT BOX- SUPERB INTERIOR WITH SECRET LOCKING DRAWER + KEY
THIS IS A SUPERB VICTORIAN EARLY TO MID 19th CENTURY BURR WALNUT VENEERED BOX WHICH HAS A DECORATIVE INLAID BRASS CARTOUCHE TO THE CENTRE OF THE LID AND ALSO A MATCHING ESCUTCHEON. THE CARTOUCHE IS UNUSED SO COULD BE ENGRAVED TO PERSONALISE IT SHOULD YOU WISH. IT COMES WITH A GOOD STRONG WORKING LOCK AND KEY WHICH FUNCTIONS WELL AND LOCKS AND UNLOCKS THE BOX EASILY BUT THIS BOX IS ALSO RATHER SPECIAL AS IT HAS A SECRET DRAWER LOCATED AT THE FRONT WHICH LOCKS INDEPENDENTLY BY MEANS OF THE PUSH BUTTON LOCATED INSIDE THE BOX AT THE BACK. THE DRAWER IS SPRING LOADED SO IT OPENS AND CLOSES EASILY.

THE LID IS ALSO A GOOD FIT WITH STRONG HINGES THAT ARE SAFE AND SECURE. A RETAINER HAS BEEN FITTED TO STOP THE LID FROM DROPPING BACK WHEN OPENED UP BUT THIS CAN EASILY BE REMOVED SHOULD YOU WISH. THE INTERIOR OF THIS BOX HAS BEEN FULLY REFURBISHED AND IS LINED WITH A ROYAL BLUE TEXTURED MATERIAL WITH LOTS OF ROOM FOR STORAGE. THE SECRET DRAWER HAS BEEN LINED TO MATCH WITH A FITTED TRAY TO HOLD ALL TYPES OF JEWELLERY INCLUDING RINGS, EARRINGS, BROOCHES AND NECKLACES. THERE IS EVEN A VELVET COVERED HOLDER FOR A POCKET WATCH SHOULD YOU REQUIRE THIS.

SOME MAY WANT THE EXTRA SPACE OR OTHERS MAY LIKE THIS PARTICULAR FEATURE SO THE CHOICE CAN BE YOURS. PLEASE REFER TO THE PHOTOGRAPHS AS I HAVE SHOWN HOW IT LOOKS WITH AND WITHOUT THE POCKET WATCH HOLDER. THIS IS A STUNNING, GOOD QUALITY BOX WHICH IS IN A VERY GOOD CONDITION WITH FAIR WEAR AND TEAR PLUS COMMENSURATE MARKINGS IN KEEPING WITH ITS AGE AND PAST USE WITH THE MOST WONDERFUL COLOUR, GRAIN AND PATINA TO THE WOOD THAT GIVES IT SUCH GREAT CHARACTER. THERE ARE VARIOUS AGE RELATED SURFACE MARKINGS AROUND THE BOX AND ALSO A LITTLE LIGHT RESTORATION TO THE VENEER ON THE BACK CORNERS OF THE LID WHICH ARE PART OF ITS PAST HISTORY.

THERE IS NOTHING OF ANY DETRIMENT BUT PLEASE ALSO STUDY THE PHOTOGRAPHS FOR CONDITION AS THEY HELP TO FORM PART OF THE DESCRIPTION. THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL PERIOD BOX WHICH IS A GENEROUS SIZE AND WOULD BE A FINE ADDITION TO A COLLECTION WHETHER FOR USE OR DISPLAY. IT WOULD ALSO MAKE A FANTASTIC GIFT TO GIVE SOMEONE FOR THAT SPECIAL OCCASION.
