An avid collector of so many different types of antiques, Kate's love for collecting antique jewellery also led her to collecting antique and vintage jewellery boxes. As her collection has grown over the years, she's decided to part with a select few. They make the perfect storage option for your jewels, and also a lovely display item too! This particular box is a beautiful example of an antique velvet ring box - it's a lovely vibrant shade of purple. We think this would make a fantastic box for a proposal or for your wedding ring on your big day. The outside is covered in purple velvet. It has a small push fastening which still works well. Inside the box has a cream interior and has space for one ring. Size - the box measures approx 380mm by 390mm by 385mm. Condition - All of our antique and vintage jewellery boxes do show signs of wear. Some of these boxes are over 100 years old and have been well loved and used. This partciular box does show significant signs of wear, including several areas where the fabric on the outside of the box has worn through. There is also fraying to the inside lid and the hinge on the outside shows signs of wear but does still work well. Please see all photos for more detail and do get in touch if you have any questions or would like to see any other angles or close ups. We only very lightly dust these antique and vintage boxes, we do not deep clean them, so we do not distrub the orginal materials. Please bear this in mind when purchasing *Please note that the jewellery pictured is not included in the sale*
