This classic Georgian period stationary box is excellent antique condition considering its age.  It is made from inlaid mahogany.  It shows excellent fit and finish and only minor wear, scratches and chips.  This design was commonly used as a storage container for table knife sets and many were also fitted with slotted liners like this example and used for stationary.  The slotted liner is very well fitted and a perfect match so perhaps this box was originally made for stationary although it is possible the liner was added later.  The inlay is quite beautiful and is well preserved.  Note a slight misalignment of the lid with the container that appears to be caused by a slightly bent hinge.  Dimensions: 14" high, 9" wide, 11" deep (front to back).  454
