A LOVELY VICTORIAN MID 19th CENTURY MAHOGANY VENEERED BOX WHICH IS INLAID WITH AN OVAL BRASS CARTOUCHE TO THE CENTRE OF THE LID WITH A INLAID BRASS ESCUTCHEON. THE CARTOUCHE IS UNUSED SO COULD BE ENGRAVED TO PERSONALISE THE BOX SHOULD YOU WISH. THERE WAS ORIGINALLY AN INSCRIPTION WRITTEN INSIDE THE BOX THAT READ'THIS BOX BELONGS TO BETTSY ANN BAKER 1866' SO I HAVE TRANSFERRED THIS TO A PIECE OF PAPER SO THAT IT RETAINS ITS PROVENANCE.

THE BOX COMES WITH A GOOD WORKING LOCK AND KEY WHICH FUNCTIONS WELL AND LOCKS AND UNLOCKS THE BOX EASILY. IT ALSO HAS A GOOD FITTING LID WITH HINGES THAT ARE SAFE AND SECURE AND THIS OPENS UP TO A REALLY NICE INTERIOR WHICH HAS BEEN RELINED WITH A CERISE COLOURED SILK DEEPLY PADDED WITHIN THE BASE AND LID AND HAS A MATCHING SIX COMPARTMENT TRAY WHICH LIFTS OUT TO GIVE FURTHER ROOM UNDERNEATH. THE EXTERIOR OF THIS BOX IS IN A GOOD CONDITION FOR ITS AGE. IT DOES HAVE AGE RELATED WEAR AND TEAR WITH COMMENSURATE SURFACE MARKINGS AS YOU MIGHT EXPECT BUT FOR SAYING IT IS OVER 150 YEARS OLD IT HAS SURVIVED WELL OTHER THAN THE VENEER HAVING HAD A LITTLE LIGHT RESTORATION ON ONE SIDE AND THE LID IN THE PAST BUT NOTHING DETRIMENTAL. PLEASE ALSO STUDY THE PHOTOGRAPHS FOR CONDITION AS THEY HELP TO FORM PART OF THE DESCRIPTION. THIS IS A HANDY SIZE BOX WITH A WONDERFUL RICH COLOUR AND GRAIN WHICH DISPLAYS REALLY WELL AND IS IDEAL FOR TRINKETS, JEWELLERY, KEEPSAKES OR WHATEVER SUITS YOUR OWN PURPOSE. 29.5cms (11.5") LONG, 22cms (8.75") WIDE AND 11.5cms (4.5) DEEP WITH A WEIGHT OF 1.2kgs. PLEASE CONTACT ME IF ANY OTHER INFORMATION IS REQUIRED.
