A quite striking 19th century calamander, or coromandel veneered domed jewellery/trinket box with large armorial brass mounts and working original lock and key, circa1880.
The dome top lifts via two brass hinges, to reveal a royal blue velvet lined box for jewellery or trinkets.
It has been sympathetically cleaned, re waxed and polished. There are a couple of age related shrinkage cracks in the veneer, but the box is quite stable and generally in excellent condition throughout.
Measurements: 23 cm wide, 12.5 cm deep and 16.5 cm high.

  • Cleaned and restored to a high standard. All you need to do is wipe over with a soft cloth from time to time. You can occasionally use a spray furniture polish that contains bees wax, which will maintain its satin sheen. Please don’t use a silicone spray as this could be detrimental to the waxed surface.
