Antique Carved Faux Tortoiseshell Jewelry Box

About

Information: This impressive jewelry box is beautifully crafted. It is covered with carved plates of realistic looking faux tortoiseshell. The carvings are very detailed and sophisticated; in addition the box has a rare shape. The inside is lined with a dark blue velvet, which has some discoloration as the box was mostly displayed with an open lid. Once, yellow fabric was lined behind the carvings and the wood frame to make it Stand out even more. It is still visible in some places, however time has taken its toll on most of it. Measurements: Height 9 cm Depth 14.5 cm Width 21 cm Condition: The box is in very good condition overall. There are some minor defects: A very small piece of the corner of the lid is missing (see photograph). There is some discoloration of the lining. The lid does not completely close as the key is missing. This exquisite faux tortoiseshell jewelry box would look lovely in any home or collection. In addition, it is completely guilt-free as not a single turtle had to give its life to create this beautiful piece!
