This is an OUTSTANDING Estate Fresh ANTIQUE ASIAN - Japan or China - WOOD w BRASS & COPPER INLAY w Lock corners that are INLAY TOO. It is an amazing 2 LAYER JEWELRY BOX w COMPARTMENTS in each layer. The workmanship is really good.I cannot say what the wood is cuz I don't know, if its Mahogany, it could be an American Piece , but the work says more Oriental to me, Japan or China area. This box is quite old. The wood pieces are chamfered inside and hand planed. The Mirror is thin glass and is reverse painted like old Clock Fronts or Decorated Mirrors... The hinges are old and the screws look hand made off center on the tops.
Looks like they have never been out which is a really good thing. The 2 keys work the lock smoothly and the top tray removes easily.It also has 2 inset inlay pocket handles that come out to lift the box. Its just a great jewelry box and this was meant for someone with some really nice stuff. The estate it came from truly supported that.
It is an awesome 15" wide x 10" deep x 4.75 tall. Just a masterful Jewelry Box, about as good as it gets!PLEASE NOTE Any Jewelry seen in my pictures is currently for sale separately, it does NOT go with the box.
