Antique Georgian Morocco Leather Box with Lion Mask Handles & Claw Feet (Code 2682)
A rare surviving morocco leather box from the Georgian period c1800. It has brass fittings with lion mask handles and claw and ball feet. There are brass edge pieces to the lid and a further brass escutcheon. The red leather does have wear and marks, but few survive from this period due to the inherent fragility of leather over time.
The interior is paper lined and there are no divisions, the area is open to use as required. It may have been used as a desk box or for many other purposes.
Wear, marks and scuffs to the leather, the images give a good appreciation of the exterior condition. Brass fittings are generally good, one foot is bent slightly. Paper to interior is worn. The lock does work but is a bit fussy.
