Tulipwood banded Amboyna Work Box c.1860/70. English.
(Reference: 1002) Price: £1,500
In bloated sarcophagus form with fitted interior.
This box has incredible attention to detail and is just a joy. The interior of the lid shows four inlaid pairs of scissors - a detail I have never seen before. The interior holds a bespoke set of miniature drawers and needle holders of very clever, neat construction. It is beautifully made all over.
