Fine Marquetry Jewelry Box

This spectacular jewelry box is in perfect condition. The marquetry consists of about 14 different species of wood with the interior, satinwood. The tray with covered boxes is removable to expose an ultra clean bare wood interior

The mirror inside the cover is bevelled glass and is the only part that shows any sign of age. The mounted pin cushion is blue velvet and probably was used for hat pins or tie stick pins.

The inlaid initials are "E. H. F." The photo has been slightly enhanced to make them stand out, but in room lighting, they are barely visible, blending with the rest of the inlay.

The box measures 17.5 x 11 x 6 inches. It is one of the finest examples I have seen in over 30 years!

18th Century Courting Mirror

Reverse painted glass border and crest on this very nice 18th century courting mirror. The crest is a floral painting and the sides are a floral motif. It measures 10 1/2 inches wide by 15 1/2 inches tall and is in near fine condition with the minor exception of a 2 1/4 inch piece of molding missing. (see photos).

19th Century Damascus Steel Bladed Mughal Dagger With Carved Camel Bone Handle

19th Century Indian Mughal dagger with carved camel bone handle in the figure of a ram's head. As can be seen in the photos, the handle was pieced together then carved. Beautiful Damascus steel blade with a silver inlaid "rain guard" in front of the handle. The scabbard is of wood covered with purple felt sewn together with red silk thread and gold thread. The length is 11 1/2 inches overall, the blade, 7 1/2 inches. A fine example in fine condition. (AM193) [SOLD] 

Item ID:

Although I date this knife as 19th Century, it could easily be 18th Century or earlier as the early Mughal Daggers very often were fitted with felt covered scabbards. The "Classic Period" of the Indian Mughal Empire began around 1655 with the ascension of Akbar  the Great to the throne. Under the rule of Akbar and his son Jahangir, India enjoyed economic progress as well as religious harmony, and the monarchs were interested in local religious and cultural traditions.
