Description:

This mid 19th century dressing box was commissioned and retailed by the top quality firm of Asprey's who's brass plaque is between the two hinges.

The box is made of solid mahogany and veneered with Coromandel wood giving that distinct black and yellow appearance. The corners have a brass protection edge. The back incidentally has been veneered in rosewood. It has been repolished at some time however there is a faint hairline veneer crack to the lid - difficult to see in the photos but the one with the bottles and jars on top, I think just shows it. It has a working Bramah lock and original key (quite rare that). The base has a green baize lining to protect any surface on which it is placed

Internally there is a brass button to the rear which releases the bottom jewellery draw under spring tension. You will note the fine handcut dovetails and the original silk and velvet lining. The inside of the lid has a removable panel (opened by pressing a button at the top) which has a mirror on one side and the original ruoched velvet to the other. This is a replacement mirror. The remaining compartments to the interior are wood lined with fine goat skin leather.

The accouterments consist a lift out tray under which is more storage, set of manicure tools (one missing and two not original) and eleven silver topped bottles and jars. Ten of these are solid silver and carry the same initials, which I think is "W" or could be an "M" to the tops and are hallmarked for James Vickery London 1866. One of the small jar lids is a replacement and silver plate.Incidentally, the small bottle lids are not hallmarked as was common but the are clearly from a matching set and thus solid silver nonetheless.All the glass ware bar one have star cut bases and are in good condition with just a few fleabites to a couple of bases. The five bottles, three large and two small, have ground glass stoppers all of which are removable and not jammed as is so often the case.

Overall I would say this is in excellent retail condition.
