Antique Jewellery Box veneered in striking coromandel with brass edging and escutcheon.
This beautiful jewellery box has an interesting Betjemann patent opening mechanism that when opened the front folds down, and the two winged storage compartments swing out through ninety degrees, this is then reversed when closing. The box is beautifully lined in black silk and purple velvet. Once fully opened it contains a removable silk lined jewellery tray. The lid of the jewellery box contains a removable leather mirror and hidden secret letter compartment.
