Large vintage oriental jewellery box. Brass handles and two drawers.

Beautiful design. Made from wood and painted an antique matte gold colour. The lid has 3D shell flowers for decoration, and the corners are reinforced with brass coloured corner braces. All the metal work in this jewellery box has engraved images, patterns, and the main clasp at the front has a beautifully detailed crane. 
There are two heavy brass carry handles with carving on both sides of the handle!

The locking mechanism is extremely decorative and slightly over engineered. But I love it like this. It gives the box an industrial feel whilst still being pretty. There isn’t a key, but the closure lends its self to having a padlock.

Under the lid is a mirror and central compartment, with a row of ring rolls either side. All the interior is lined with a vivid red lining. 

There are two doors to the front, behind which are two jewellery drawers. 

There are some marks and scuffs to the box, and a small black mark on the lid (please see photos). The brass has lost its shine in lots of places.
