Antique Mahogany Stationery Box - Edwardian Sheraton Revival with Lock c1905 (Code 2164)
A particularly good example of an Edwardian Sheraton revival stationery box c1905. It is made from mahogany and has box wood stringing and inlaid roundels. The demi lune lid opens to reveal a multi division interior with blue fabric lining to the underside of the lid. The box has a brass lock which still works to keep your correspondence safe from prying eyes. Lovely rich tone to the wood especially the back panel with a strong red hue. It is a high quality example and perhaps one of the best you are going to find.
Light wear, marks and scratches, but much less than usual for such an item. Good finish and nice chatoyancy. Lock works well, fittings in good order. Even the fabric is very good still. The ageing of the fabric to the base is perhaps the only real sign of it's true age.
