Antique Brass Strapped African Cherry Jewelry Box Beautiful One & Only Color is a Green Collectibles for Sale in Crystal Beach FL
1 / 9
Price:
$1 OBO
Location:
Crystal Beach, FL
Description:

This came over from England in the 1880's and is made from a rare and hard exotic wood called African cherry also known as makore.I've never seen any kind of box made out of wood that's such a beautiful color.It's reddish brown color with blonde highlights.The few that are for sale online are all dark walnut or mahogany starting at $750 and going up to $1800 and not one is in this good of condition or this color.The brass is inlaid not laid over so it's flush with the wood on all 4 brass corners.Only a master craftsman could attach the brass strapping without using any nails.The wood had to be notched precisely then heated with steam without splitting it so the brass could be pressed in.140 years later they haven't moved unlike laid over brass that always come loose with nails failing off over time.The nails that were used to put the box together are counter sunk then covered over with the saw dust from the African cherry mixed with an adhesive so there's not any nail heads showing anywhere.It looks like it was made yesterday. It has a removable top drawer and is covered in a premium deep purple velvet.It measures 10 1/2" by 7" and is 4 1/2" tall and was full of Jade,emeralds and rubies along with all kinds of precious and semi precious stones.It's a beautiful one and only jewelry box for less than you could have someone make it for using any kind of exotic wood because you could find any more that's naturally this color.$450 727-479-XXXX
