Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The surface of the body and sides of the cover are plain and unembellished.
This antique jewellery box is fitted with a hallmarked hinged cover incorporating an impressive tortoiseshell panel ornamented with exceptional silver piqué work depicting simplified intertwining scroll designs incorporated within floral bud garlands.
The cover openes to reveal the original cedar wood and leatherette interior fitted with a bespoke navy blue velvet lined well and lift out compartment.
The base is weighted as to be expected, and retains the original leatherette to the underside.
This impressive antique tortoiseshell jewellery box is a large example for its type.
Not measurable due to the weighted base and tortoiseshell.
