Antique Aesthetic Movement Arts and Crafts / Art Nouveau brass inlaid wooden box containing a manicure / jewellery dresser set. Contents of necessaire 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 original handles. 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.
A number of the manicure pieces are also marked with the Henckels logo (a pair of stylised people), that is still in use today. Add Me to Your Favorite Sellers. Feel free to ask question.
