This antique jewellery box, dating from the mid 1870’s, is veneered in vibrant Coromandel and edged with brass.
The partitioned interior of the box is lined with blue velvet and moiré silk. A push button to the rear rim of the box deploys the front spring-loaded and independently lockable lower drawer. This partitioned drawer is fitted with a full width ring/ cuff link channel. A push button to the left rim of the box deploys the spring-loaded drawer to the right side. The interior brass work is delicately engraved with a scroll design.
A leather framed panel fitted to the underside of the lid is inset with ruched velvet; a secret push button in the roof of the lid springs the panel forward to reveal a beveled mirror on the reverse. Two hinged engraved brass brackets are located behind; these open out to 90-degrees in order to hold the mirror panel at a useable height and angle. A secret leather-bound letter wallet sits beneath these brackets.
