Anglo-Indian Ebony Jewelry BoxEarly 19th century
A delicately carved British colonial ebony jewelry box. It features geometric carving amid stylized trellis and foliate designs on the top and the four sides.
The interior houses several small compartments, a lift out tray and a mirror. The mirror can be brought forward from the lid and rests on the frontal compartments of the interior.
The box rests on an attached curvilinear base with a moulded edge.
The box is in good condition and has been lovingly restored and finished to its former glory using a traditional form of French polishing and waxing.
Ebony (Diospyrus Ebenum) is a black wood of very close grain and heavy in weight.
