Victorian Tunbridge Ware Walnut Sewing Box

SORRY, THIS ITEM IS SOLD!!

A Victorian Tunbridge Ware Inlaid Walnut Sewing Box c1870/80

A lovely Victorian sewing box (c1870/80) with walnut veneered surface, inlaid Tunbridge Ware style with two bands of mosaic parquetry and a diamond-shaped motif to the centre of the lid. The hinged lid opens to reveal a plush, red, quilted interior.

 Condition

Apart for a small chip in the veneer at the base of one of the corners and minor age-related wear, the  box is in good, sound antique condition and, although the lock is missing its securing lug on the underside of the lid, the lock itself works and the key is present. There is a little damage to both side pockets within the box and a small stain, but for a working item that is around 145 years old it has stood the test of time well!

 Approximate dimensions are:

Height: 3 3/4ins (9.5cm); Width: 9ins (23cm); Depth: 6ins (15cm)

 

Postage = £6.80 (2nd Class Signed For)
