B1176 - SOLD
This is a gorgeous, superb quality antique Italian tooled leather trinket / jewellery box dating from the 19th century.
The leather is in a rich chestnut hue and is very tactile. The lid is exquisitely tooled. It has a beautiful gilded central bow with a swag extending to either side. The swag is caught at each corner and descends to end in a little tassel. To the front of the lid are further finely detailed intricate scrolls and curls. We have left the leather as we found it - softly scuffed with the passage of time but it could be waxed and polished to a high gloss finish if required.
The lid of the box lifts up to reveal a sumptuous interior lined with a gorgeous mint coloured silk. The underside of the lid is deeply padded and buttoned. The silk is in good antique condition with no wear.
The box has a strong piano hinge and sits on four little studs. It has a lock with a cute escutcheon but sadly the key has long gone.
The box is sturdy and is in good antique condition.
It measures :- 23.5 cm (9.25 inches) wide x 16.5 cm (6.5 inches) deep x 8.5 cm (3.3 inches) high.
An exceptional antique leather jewellery box to use and enjoy. It is from a carefully selected collection of antique decorative pieces at 'La Belle Étoffe'!
N.B. Any accessories used to display the box are not included.
