Victorian Stationary Box

Shown below is a beautifully hand-decorated Victorian stationery box, complete with silk lining for papers, cards and envelopes. The exterior is coromandel wood veneered, a beautiful dark wood which is native to India, Sri Lanka and South East Asia but sadly is now extinct.  It has been said that even recycled coromandel wood is very hard to find, making this piece even more special indeed.  Along with the coromandel wood, this box is carefully decorated with gilt brass mounts and ivory motifs making it a truly memorable piece to own.


For further information about this and all our antiques please visit our illustrated website http://www.grahamsmithantiques.com, or better yet, pop into our well-stocked themed showroom in Benton, Newcastle Upon Tyne.
