Antique Large Brass Bound Box

Antique Large Brass Bound Box

A large, brass bound mahogany Box. The box has 16 brass straps to the top and a good, flush fitting handle engraved with the initials I (or J) MW interwoven with a floral design. The main body of the box has 2 straps to each corner. The interior is lined in baize with red leather trim to the top interior edge. The box has a lift out tray to the front with a single divider below and a full depth compartment behind it. The subtly of a carved cock bead to the top and rounded edge to the bottom lip and divider shows that it was made by someone with the attention to detail that leads to quality. The plain compartments, with a lack of shaped fittings, do not allow us to guess what this box was intended for but it does offer good storage space. Early 19th Century.
