Victorian Boulle Book Box.
A incredible example of a Victorian Boulle book box dating back to c.1850.
The box is wonderfully shaped made of red tortoiseshell and beautifully elaborated brass with ebonised sides and back and a brass initial plate to the centre with the initials “BB” engraved to it.
Open the box to reveal brass hinges and fittings to hold the lid upright. We have relined the interior with a beautiful handcrafted marble paper.
The box is complete with a working lock and tasselled key.
Superb quality and condition measuring 33 x 23 and stands 14cm high.
