Object description :

"Toilet Box In Snake Wood Signed "
Magnificent Victorian-era toilet box, made of Snakewood veneer on Mahogany: this precious deep yellow wood, endemic to the Guyanese forest, takes its name from the large brown spots that shade it, reminiscent of the scales of 'a snake. Rectangular in shape, this kit includes 10 original Crystal containers, each with their silver and chiselled metal lid. The lid, covered in its original royal blue fabric, remains locked thanks to a clip-on compass system, adjustable as desired in four positions. A discreet push button allows the opening of a drawer sporting the same fabric, which offers an ideal hiding place to conceal jewelery from prying eyes. This sash bears the signature of the famous Liverpool factory, "John Bagshaw & Sons", supplier of the British nobility in the Victorian era, attesting to its quality and authenticity. Note the presence on the lid of a plaque bearing the name of the first owner, Anne Verburgh. Witness to another time and a luxurious art of living, this splendid box with its bewitching reflections will make a remarkable decorative object in your interior, while offering you interesting storage space for your perfumes and other small precious objects.
