An Oriental vintage lacquered jewel box with a beautiful semi-precious stone floral motif.
This stunning and unusual box features the most beautiful semi-precious stone flower motif on its lid and further floral detail around the sides and top. This piece has an aged patina as much of the gold detail has been worn away.
Although the exterior of this wonderful box shows its age, the interior of the box is like new. The interior has two sections lined is in brown silk and a mirror on the reverse of the lid. The removable top layer has a section for rings.
The box is in good vintage condition and the brass fittings work correctly. There are two hinges to the back of the lid and a brass closure to the front. A piece of silk used to keep the box open has come away from the back of the lid on the right-hand side. The mirror is slightly frosted and not particularly clear.
The box measures approx. 23cm x 15cm x 7cm and weighs approx. 905grams.
A lovely vintage gift, this will be gift wrapped for yourself or for someone else.
