Item:123335896351COMPLETELY GENUINE RED MOROCCO LEATHER ANTIQUE CARTIER ART DECO JEWELLERY BOX . c1920s SUITABLE FOR RINGS, WEDDING RINGS, EARRINGS, SMALL JEWELLERY, PENDANTS, CUFFLINKS etc. Such boxes come to the market very rarely and are highly sought after and a great investment as their prices are rising exponentially. This is a very rare antique jewellery box from world famous jewellers Cartier. This box dates to the first half of the 20th century and is from the Art Deco period. Circa 1920s. EXTERIOR - The subtle red leather (much less brassy than the modern red shade) has a beautiful swagged outer lid with a decorative gold border on the side of the upper lid .The outside rim of the lower box is also decorated with two gold bands. - both internal and external condition are uncommonly perfect with the mildest of age related wear. - rarely (and I have only been lucky enough to see this once before) the external closing clip retains its leather covering. - the shape is oblong and has the gold CARTIER stamp on the base. - Approx 7 1/2cm long x 4 1/2cm wide. INTERIOR Lower lid - beautiful condition with the mildest of age related wear - base is lined in exquisitely draped (only Cartier did such beautiful draping) with thick high quality silk satin. - the leather encasing the silk is decorated with gold leaf dots. Upper lid - again draped in finest cream silk satin - the leather encasing the silk is decorated with gold leaf dots. - the lid contains the Cartier logo, and the words: CARTIER New York 653 Fifth Avenue Paris 13 Rue de la Paix London 175 New Bond Street This box is likely to be from Cartier New York as the New York address is listed first. The base of the case is stamped in gold CARTIER. The clasp closes securely with a nice click - as mentioned, to find such an old box with its clasp retaining its leather cover is a great rarity, I have only ever see one other fully covered like this. The hinges are perfection and the whole case is sturdy and had obviously only had minor use. An absolutely fabulous box and a real piece of history - these boxes are so very sought after - by collectors and museums - that they are becoming not only hard to come by but highly investable. The year on year increases in the prices of antique Cartier boxes is phenomenal.Condition:Used, Condition:In superb condition. Retains leather cover to clip which is very rare.

A real beauty., Brand:Cartier, Subtype:Antique, Suitable For:Rings, Earrings, Small Jewellery, Type:Boxes, Material:Leather, Country/Region of Manufacture:France, MPN:Not Available Then
