Location:
Crystal Beach, FL
Description:

This came over from England in the 1880's and is made from a rare and hard to find exotic wood called African cherry also known as makore.You don't see very many brass bound jewelry boxes that are this old and in this condition to begin with and I've never seen any kind of box made out of African cherry that's a beautiful reddish brown color with blonde highlights.The few I've seen were all made from dark walnut or mahogany and none were is in near this good of condition.The brass is inlaid in to the wood not laid over the top and then nailed down.It took a master craftsman to expertly notch the wood without splitting it so the brass could be pressed on without showing any nail heads.All four brass corners are like the brass straps are flush with the wood and smooth as silk.It's around 140 years old and looks like it was made yesterday.It has a removable top drawer covered in a deep purple velvet felt like the bottom is.There's a small round wear spot on the velvet in the top drawer and that's the only spot on it.It measures 10 1/2" by 7" and is 4 1/2" tall.It's a beautiful one and only jewelry box you won't find again.Make an offer.727-479-XXXX
