A brass edged, rosewood Jewellery Box with drawer to the front. Aside from a rounded brass edge to all sides of the box it also has 2 brass tramlines for decoration to the top and front of the box. The top of the box has a set in engraving plate with the initials M.B and a surrounding tramline. The box also has brass to where the top and bottom edges meet, for strength. The main lock, although not named, is a Bramah type. The top section of the box has a velvet lined, lift out leather tray fitted with various compartments to take jewellery and a watch to the centre. The underside of the tray is padded to cushion the contents put into the velvet lined, plain section below. The drawer has a good, small campaign handle and is fitted with leather dividers. The drawer liners are mahogany. This is a good quality box that would hold a lot of jewellery. Circa 1840.
