You don't see very many 150 year old brass strapped jewelry boxes in this condition and there either mahogany or walnut and not African cherry that's a beautiful color of reddish brown with blonde highlights.Only a master craftsman could notch the wood and inlay the brass so it's flush to the surface of the wood giving it a unobstructed smooth finish on the top and bottom and all 4 corners.The nail heads have been counter sunk and covered so they don't show.Most of these lay the brass over the wood and then just nail it down to save time.Not only are the nail heads showing but it starts coming apart in no time.It's from England and I can date it to the 1870's so it could be older.There's a removable top drawer covered in a dark purple velvet like the bottom is.The felt has a couple of worn spots on it and that's the only thing keeping this from Beijing g in mint condition.There's not another jewelry box of this quality made from African cherry anywhere.I also have a 100 year old large cocobolo bowl that's 10 1/2" in diameter by 5 1/2" tall in with beautiful grain lines.Because it's so old it's done changing colors so it won't get any darker.This jewelry box is easily worth twice what I'm selling it $350 and so is the bowl.$100.727-479-6513
