Description

Beautifully proportioned early 19th century casket on brass feet. Veneered with opulent burr yew wood, it is finished with boxwood and ebony fine line inlays. The original brassware is of the finest quality, and is in exceptional condition, retaining much of the original gilding. The original interior, probably a ladies work box, was replaced some time ago (possibly in the 1920s/30s) with a plush wine red velvet and a fine leather covered jewellery tray. A jewel of a box, a perfect gift!
