This listing is for an amazing blonde mahogany box with brass fittings dating to the mid-19th century. It has a working brass lock AND key, the lock is a bit stiff from lack of use, but works fine.It was a surgeons tool box at one point and has brass labels on the inner lid saying "John Weiss & Son" and "62 Strand London". It is in excellent antique condition (in my opinion) but please see pictures for your own information.
It has two side latches (work but not perfectly) , as well as brass strappings and corners with dove-tailed connections, a top quality box for its time. It's 15mm solid mahogany along the frame and the top and bottom is also solid mahogany. It is odour free and issue free (no wood worm or significant structural damage, see photos). The exterior has its original finish and the interior is ready for a paper interior to be applied, though I prefer it as it is. The brass name plate is blank.
The box includes original compartments and drawer, and these can be removed without damaging the main box if desired. It would make a fantastic desk or pistol box etc. You are unlikely to see another like it anytime soon. I will post the box via Parcel Force domestically.
The box is in wonderful condition (in my opinion), but as antique item is not perfect and I make no claims of such. Exceptional Mahogany Campaign Box With Drawer Brass Surgery.
