ART NOUVEAU HAND DECORATED BOX BY BEATRICE CAMERON, GROSVENOR SQUARE LONDON

Up for auction is this

ANTIQUE HAND DECORATED BOX BY BEATRICE CAMERON

- GROSVENOR SQUARE LONDON -

CIRCA 1890 - 1910

Esquisite as you can see, this is a lovely hand decorated octagon box from the prestigious shop of Beatrice Cameron, Grosvenor Square, London. This would date from the Art Nouveau period 1890 - 1910.

I understand this was originally designed for used as a collar box, it has lovely green silk lining and may have also been used as a lady's jewelry box.

Importantly, this box retains its original key, albeit it is a bit fiddly to lock/unlock but I am sure this could be freed up if required.

Relatively good condition bearing in mind this is hand decorated. There is evidence of four old woodworm holes which have obvioulsy been treated a long time ago (certainly nothing there now). There is a small crew missing from the inside lock. Under the hand decoration there is also an un-opened crack to a small area, this could be just the wood or a very old repair - kindly see the photos.

An unusual size - it measures just under 4inches high, 5.75 x just over 4.5inches wide.

Please see all photos (apologies for the reflection).

My customer service is of paramount importance to me as a Business Seller so please take a moment to read the below points prior to bidding.

1) I will post five working days after receiving cleared payment, however quicker posting is unusually available so please ask if required .

2) I pack using only new boxes, new bubble and new packing peanuts and as a result there is an additional small charge for this included within my P & P costs quoted within the listing. The charge is not me making further profit, simply ensuring that the goods I sell have the best chance possible of arriving with you in the same condition. My feedback comments are testament to this so please take the opportunity to review these and ensure you are happy with my trading conditions as I will not compromise on the high standard I maintain, thank you.

3) All UK posting is sent via Royal Mail 1st Class Recorded, for tracking purposes only. Any item considered an antique will not be insured. Further postal options are available and I am happy to meet your specific requirements.

4) Overseas shipping is via Standard Airmail, no tracking facility included in the cost quoted within the listing. However I always obtain a 'Certificate of Postage' which will assist if an item goes missing in transit. Other shipping options are available 'Airsure' (+ �5.40) provides tracking to destination, 'International Signed For' (+ �5.15) is available for those countries not covered by Airsure, but tracking is only available until it leaves the UK.

5) Upon receipt of your parcel if there are any problems please do not hesitate to contact me prior to leaving feedback to ensure such problems can be resolved. I am a professional providing a high standard of service.

6) Please don't forget to leave me feedback. As mentioned, I pride myself on providing a high standard of customer service and as a business on Ebay your feedback is important to both me and other potential buyers. Thank you.
