18th Century Italian Antique Box With Decoupage Decoration And Pincushion

 

 

An 18th Century Italian antique tabletop box.

Constructed from treen with a thin layer of gesso and paint with applied decoupage to all the external surfaces excluding the base which is covered with an associated piece of green felt.

The lid is inset with a red fabric cushion, possibly once used as a pincushion.

The lid opens to reveal a painted red interior.

With its original brass hinges, knob and escutcheon.

Condition – there is significant surface wear as one would expect given age. Please refer to the images. One rear external hinge is loose due to the loss of a number of fixing pins. The internal silk ribbon that joins the lid to the carcass has snapped. Whilst the key is present, the lock no longer functions. A further condition report is available upon request.
