19th century very unusual oak tambour roll top box

19th century very unusual oak tambour roll top box.



Item Ref



19th century most unusual tambour topped oak box, which may have originally been made as a clerks box or humidor.
This interesting box has arched sides, a very close fitted and skilfully made flat tambour roll top, and a brass carry handle, as well as additional shaped brass fittings. A lower drawer pulls open, which automatically rolls back the tambour top to reveal a divided wood interior on top, and a lift out divided tray in the top of the drawer, which lifts to reveal another divided interior having moveable dividers.
The action is very smooth, both for opening and closing.
The brass drawer pull is bent a bit off centre, which in no way effects the action. There is no key.
A brass label is fixed to the back for C. T. Jones Oxford, and the bottom is lined with baize to protect the table surface.
With lovely patina and colour, this is in very good condition.
Size-12.75 inches long by 9.5 inches wide (closed) by 9.5 inches high. It is 15.25 inches wide open.
Weight-3.5 kilos.
A great box for the collector, to use as a humidor, or for whatever you like.
