Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The interior of this splendid Jewellery Box is magnificently lined with a emerald green leather & silk velvet, with two removable trays one of which has an original working Stirling silver pocket watch & winder, its stamped with the hall mark "Birmingham 1895" and no longer works.
We believe this box could have belonged to John Adrian Louis Hope KT GCMG GCVO PC, the 1st Marquess of Linlithgow. Monograms usually comprise of three letters that best represent the name. The first letter in the Monogram read is usually the largest or most interesting in design which would be the middle letter in this case. Looking at monograms around the same period as the jewellery box is what lead us to John Adrian Louis Hope, a Scottish aristocrat, politician and colonial administrator, who is best known for his brief tenure as the first Governor General of Australia. John Adrian Louis Hope 1860 - 1908
This divine Jewellery box comes with a fully working & stamped Bramah lock with tasselled key.
