HENCKELS Arts & Crafts Brass inlaid Jewelry Box w Manicure Set (ID:3139)


Arts and Crafts / Art Nouveau brass inlaid wooden box containing a manicure / dresser set.


Manicure set made by J.


Henckels Zwillingswerk Solingen (Germany) - late 19th - early 20th century.

The fabulous brass inlaid box was almost certainly made by Erhard and Sohne.

Box measures approx 10 inches accross and 6 inches high.

Brass box / casket with wood inlay.

Rich wood with gorgeous patina and markings, curved and domed.

The brass patterning is superb - see photos, and the ultimate in design, with scrolls, fans and symbolised flowers.

The shapes and their repetition around all the surfaces of the box, give a strong sense of flowing movement.

The deep inside section has an upper layer that is fitted for a manicure / dresser set with ivory handles.

Two items are missing.

The set includes a small corkscrew that would be used to remove the cork on a perfume bottle.

The fitted tray is lined in blue velvet.

The padded inside of the lid with royal purple cover has gilt embossed logo for J.


Henckels Zwillingswerk SOlingen.

A number of the manicure pieces are also marked with the Henckels logo (a pair of stylised people), that is still in use today.

Condition is very good.
