A coromandel and petit point table box. c 1870
A large coromandel table box with an inset panel of petit point embroidery under glass. The flowers are executed in shades of red, pink and blue and the leaves in greens and browns. The fawn background is unworked canvas but the panel is defined by embroidered corners.
The box is lined with red watered silk which is in excellent condition.The silvered hinges and brass lock are the originals but I haven't a key that works it.
The veneer is in excellent condition- no damage and the glass is clean and colours bright.
