Fine Quality Antique Late 18thc Georgian Flame Mahogany Serpentine Knife Box:
FINE QUALITY ANTIQUE LATE 18thC GEORGIAN FLAME MAHOGANY SERPENTINE KNIFE BOX Description
This is a fine quality Georgian flame mahogany serpentinefronted knife box, dating from the reign of George III c.1790
Measures 14" tall, 9" wide and 12" deep
Made from beautifully coloured flame mahogany with boxwood stringing to the edges, this is a very fine quality unrestored box that displays superbly. Excellent shut lines to all the edges, and a really great colour.
The original internal knife slots have been removed sometime in the past.
Inexcellent orginal unrestored condition ; some old stable, agerelated cracks to the veneer on the left side of the serpentine front ( see photos) but relatively minor and nothing you wouldn't expect with an honest original box over 200 years old.
Very low start.
Any questions, please ask.
Thanks for looking.
