For Auction:

A very clean - antique - Victorian era - solid mahogany box that comes with its original working lock and key and is a very impressive item.

The solid mahogany is a golden honey in colour with fine grain patterns running through the aged wood - there are no marks nor blemishes upon the wood and it is smooth to the touch. There is just a very small 'nick' to the wood just by the small key hole brass escutcheon.

There is fine ebony inlay around the edge of the lid - all is complete. To the front there is a small brass key hole escutcheon - this box comes with its original small working lock and original key.

There is a full length drawer running the length of the box - with a small brass - military styled recessed flush handle - this drawer cannot be opened without first removing a brass rod that is held within the box.
