Antique & Rare Brass Strapped African Cherry Jewelry Box Beautiful Color is a Green Antiques for Sale in Crystal Beach FL
1 / 9
Price:
$250
Location:
Crystal Beach, FL
Description:

This is made from a beautiful color of exotic wood called African cherry also known as Makore reddish brown color with blonde highlights.The few that are for sale online are nothing like this.There all darker and made from walnut or mahogany.The brass is inlaid not laid over so it's flush with the wood across it and on all 4 corners.A master craftsman attached the brass 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 brass that's laid over and nailed.The nails always come loose fall off over time.The nails that were used to put the box together are counter sunk then covered over so there's not any nail heads showing anywhere.It's in such good condition that it looks like it was made last year. It has a removable top drawer that's covered in deep purple velvet like the bottom.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 other precious and semi precious stones.It hadn't been opened in over 30 years when I got it and decided to take everything out and sell it.I've seen antique mahogany and walnut brass strapped jewelry boxes that are all a darker starting at $750 and going up over $1800.None of are in this condition or have this beautiful color of wood.$250 727-479-XXXX
