Antique Victorian jewelry box and pocket watch stand in the form of a miniature desk, night stand or cabinet. Made 19th century.<P><P>
Comes from the estate of the late Beverly Sills, famous opera singer and society beneficiary.<P><P>
Measures 8 inches accross and 6 inches to the top of the arch. <P><P>
Miniature wooden chest or desk. Beautifully constructed with rounded and stepped edges and inlaid wood with wonderful veneer patterning. A hook for hanging a fob watch above an inset circle. <P><P>
The left side is a cupboard, the right a pair of drawers. Wood inlay designed so that they look identical from the outside. However, the left side swings open on hinges and closes with a little latch. If you look very carefully on the inside (where your knee would go were you to sit at the piece), there is a tiny hole. The right side drawers are constructed in typical Victorian style, with dovetailed joints. <P><P>
Great veneer to the wood. Good condition.<P><P>
The watch shown in one of the 'photos was found inside the drawer of another item from the Beverly Sills estate. It is not included with this item, but it is available for sale.
