Antique Late Victorian period circa 1880's Rare Example of a Travelling Jewellery Box after a suitcase style, the case is fashioned in brushed Green Leather and features a dueal hinged leather carry handle to the top along with a Proud set Lock Escutcheon for a bramah Lock fitting (or similar) the lock is intact but there is no key so working order is unknow. The Case is tooled to the top with a set of initials in gold leaf impress featuring the letters'L. S' in a gothic Font. The Case when set down on a desired surface opens via way of a drop leaf lid, (note the lid edge is purpose shaped to fit around the lock escutcheon when closed) when opened the lid serves as an appraisal tray for jewellery, featuring a soft padded silk surface with the case lid edge serving as a gallery enclosure to the jewellery area,, the main body to the case interior features a series of green brushed leather jewellery drawers in a hinged Carousel'reveal' movement, there are a total of six individual jewellery drawers with three stacked per side, simply urge the top drawer open by pulling towards one and the lower two drawers follow suit to open in a staggered pattern as can be seen from the photographs.

Each of the jewellery draws are quarter circle shaped and lined in padded cream velvet with the top most jewellery drawer to either side also featuring a Ring channel flush to one edge. Each of the jewellery drawers are brass hinged to the side wall interior of the case (please see last two photographs). There are signs of wear to the jewellery case, all cosmetic and giving lots of character to this aged jewellery case, the case itself i can confirm however is structurally sound throughout. This Fine Antique jewellery case may well have been a travelling salesman's piece of the period or perhaps an'away' type jewellery case for a wealthy individual. The Case when closed shut measures 22.5 cm x 13 cm x 13 cm in dimension.
