Decorative Brass box, vintage oval brass storage box, engraved with shield, flowers and garlands, with acorn handle on the lid, cookie jar

  • $8500 CAD


A great looking vintage decorative brass box, with a pineapple or acorn handle on the lid. This oval brass storage box has been partially engraved with a shield, flowers and garlands. It's in great condition with signs of age and patina.

The box looks to be early 19th century in date due to the wear on the engravings on the lid. The engravings on the side are Victorian in style. It was not uncommon for the Victorians to take an (for them old plain boring) item and decorate it by engraving, painting or stencilling. The bottom has been stamped 358, same as the inside of the lid. The burgundy red velvet lining has been newly added by myself and can be easily removed if wished.

This would look great in any room of the house, be it as a storage item or decorative piece. It would make a great cookie jar, jewellery box or general stowage.

Size: 17.5 cm wide x 13.2 cm deep x 15.5 cm tall (includes the lid and handle, the body is 10.5 cm tall)
