Antique Heavily Inlaid Rosewood Presentation Box Reminiscent of Tunbridge Ware For Sale
Antique Heavily Inlaid Rosewood Presentation Box Reminiscent of Tunbridge Ware:
This box is truly a jewel. It's a lovely mid 19th century presentation box done in rosewood and heavily and expertly inlaid with a variety of woods in a sunflower pattern, some almost resembling Tunbridge ware. It measures just under 13.5" x 5 1/8" x 4 1/8" and is lined in gorgeous, forest green silk velvet. The box has no issues that we can see, aside from some slight sun fading on the front, as that panel is a hair lighter than the rest. Probably the side that was most exposed to the light over it's many years. The box has been professional re-polished as the original varnished was darkened, heavily alligatored and damaged, almost completely concealing the beauty of this fine piece. The box has no key.This piece has been in our collection for some time, but we are downsizing a bit, so some pieces will need to move on to new homes. This is a wonderful little piece and would be a lovely addition to your collection! Please ask all questions before purchasing and thanks for looking!
