Approximately 18 1/2 long x 14 1/4 wide x 5 1/8 inches deep outside size.
The tray is approximately 17 long x 12 3/4 wide x 1 inch deep.
The base of the box is approximately 17 1/8 long x 12 7/8 wide x 2 1/4 inches deep.
I would say excellent condition for 1898.
Some marks around over time having a wonderful patina.
A large chip on one corner – see photo.
Dovetailed joints on the corners.
Newly relined in a holly green colour velour material.
All the brass has been clean and refitted with the original screws apart from three which were corroded.
Not the original key but it works ok.
The brass lock is stamped ‘ VR ‘ .
The maker has marked the date inside the lid – see photo.
Cleaned and waxed polished.
New black plastic has been added to the base of the box and tray to tidy it up.
Will make a nice jewellery box or has many uses.
You are buying one used item.
