An amboyna, China Trade Dressing Case.

The box has rounded brass edges and inlaid brass stringing with fleur de lys motifs to the corners. The plain engraving plate to the top and the escutcheon are shaped to echo the design of the flush brass carrying handles to the sides. The box has its key and when opened, it can be seen that it is also edged in brass where the top meets the bottom. A sprung support bar automatically locks into place to hold the top open.

The box is lined in thin green leather and has a removable ebony tray with hardwood base board. The tray has various dividers and a lidded compartment. Below the tray is a plain well. Although the interior of the box is relatively simple compared to some it perhaps makes it more practical for modern use.

This is a good-looking Chinese Export Box with a deep colour to the amboyna. Early to mid 19th Century.
