  • Unique find! Only 1 available.

  • Shopping pre-owned is choosing sustainable luxury
  • One-of-a-kind item exclusively curated for you
  • Ships with full insurance + signature confirmation

General Information:

  • Approximate Dimensions: 8 inches long x 5.125 inches wide x 4.5 inches high
  • Weight: 1 lb 11 oz
  • Era: This box is believed to date anywhere from the 1930s to the 1950s.
  • Manufacturer: London Harness Co.
  • Markings: The exterior lid is monogrammed with an embossed gilt โ€œE.R.D.โ€ The exterior base is stamped with a gilt โ€œLondon Harness Co.โ€, and the interior case bears a tag reading โ€œMade in Englandโ€
  • Buyer Notes: This jewelry box is a highly desirable ware by collectors and connoisseurs alike, as it is as practical as it is beautiful for display. Boxes such as these were designed for ladies to safely and securely travel with their finest adornments, the build and materiality of these boxes intended for heirloom use for decades. The retainment of both the liftout jewelry tray and the original jewelry pad make this box collectible, as these elements are commonly lost to time. Please note that the liftout tray no longer has the leather tabs on its east and west sides (as pictured), and the pad exhibits an area of darning that was stitched sometime in the componentโ€™s history. Also note that the wood frame construction is in fine shape throughout, though the lid joints show some loosening, as such construction was intentionally designed to function without the use of wood glue. As such, its loosening is natural for this construction type and age, though does not affect the effectiveness of the box or its closure system. Please keep in mind that the photos show how these joints may be pulled looser and pushed tighter with the finger; in an untouched state, the joints do meet. This characteristic is perfectly normal, but may be carefully glued permanently shut if so desired by the next caretaker. With a vibrant color story and plush interior, this traveling jewelry case is as stylish as it is sensible and is a lovely example of 20th century staple travel accessories for women.

Exterior:

  • Exterior Construction & Materials: Smooth, sealed and top finished leather wrapped wood framework, as is typical of historic boxes intended to last decades and generations. The leather shows subtle horizontal texture to the material
  • Exterior Colors: Cranberry to red dyed natural leather
  • Exterior Conditions: Wear commensurate with age and use, some wrinkling and/or splitting of leather and stress points, such as the top handle

Interior:

  • Interior Lid Materials: Extremely fine velvet corduroy padded lining
  • Interior Lid Color: Matching cranberry to redย 
  • Interior Lid Conditions: Wear, light picking and areas of abrasion or friction around perimeter
  • Interior Hinge Covering Material: None; hinges are exposed
  • Interior Hinge Covering Conditions: In good, working order
  • Interior Tray Materials: leather wrapped beveled wood tray with larger open compartment and ring slot compartment running lengthwise, both lined in matching fine padded velvet corduroy Inner Ring Slot Materials: Extremely fine velvet corduroy padded lining
  • Ring Slot Count: Single continuous slot without dividers
  • Ring Slot Average Dimensions: 7 inches long x 0.875 inch wide; slot holds between 8-10 rings on average and accommodates rings that are up to about 5.30 mm in width and rise about 18.5 mm from the finger/top of shank (per the measurement of the interior lid inset)

Closure:

  • Hardware Materiality: Hinges are brass, and front closure system is base metal with golden film coating to give the appearance of brassย 
  • Closure System: Spring tab closure that would have originally locked with a key, but the key is no longer present; to open, push key escutcheon down and tab closure will pop out
  • Closure Conditions: Closure system works well with โ€˜clickโ€™ despite loss of original key; golden brass-like film coating on hardware is peeling and shows commensurate wear, though does not affect usability of the system

Specifications:

All specifications, including but not limited to the measurements, age, origins, and material compositions are supplied in good faith as professional estimations constructed using professional grade tools, years of learned and honed skills, educational resources and academic scholarship, and refined research methods. Regardless of our confidence in our descriptions and the photographs deemed viable extensions of these descriptions, we cannot guarantee the definitiveness, faultlessness, or exactitude beyond our knowledge and expertise. Kindly keep in mind that this and all items are sold as-is vintage, antique and estate secondhand wares, and consequently bear conditional wear in matter and operation commensurate with age and use.

By placing an order, you accept and agree to uphold all of Revival Fine Jewelry's terms, conditions and policies.

General Information: All additional jewelry boxes, ring boxes, and other jewelry items pictured alongside a featured listing are considered props, are for photographic and display purposes only and are not included in the transaction unless otherwise noted. Items do not come with physical documentation, appraisals, or certifications, unless explicitly stated in the item description and/or title. While jewelry is inspected upon procurement by the shop as well as prior to shipment, Revival Fine Jewelry cannot guarantee a warranty once items leave our inventory, given the delicate and individual nature of secondhand articles and the unaccountability of buyer handling post-purchase.

Shipping: All orders are carefully packed within a branded Revival Fine Jewelry gift box, secured with recycled materials when possible, and shipped within a discreet outer shipping parcel. All orders ship with tracking, insurance and signature confirmation. Shipping options are presented at checkout. Per law and inegrity, international orders are always marked as commodity imports and customers are responsible for any and all customs expenses, VAT taxes and import fees, as well as any clearance costs legally dictated by their respective destination countries. These expenses are not calculated into the pricing structure, and returns based on import costs will not be permitted.

Returns: While Revival Fine Jewelry aims to provide a smooth experience from start to finish, customers are encouraged to reach out regarding any issue or dissatisfaction, so that we may work together toward a resolution. If a return is desired, the shop must be notified of an intention to return withinย 3 daysย of confirmed delivery, and item(s) must be shipped back to the shop withinย 7 daysย of confirmed delivery. All materials (gift box, inserts, cards) must be returned with the item(s). Returns declared after the 3 day window and/or postmarked after 7 days of receipt will neither be accepted nor refunded. Customers are responsible for generating an insured return shipping label (international customers included) and relaying the tracking information to Revival Fine Jewelry. Returns that do not include full insurance and/or tracking, and are damaged or lost in transit, will not be refunded. If a return is accepted, customers will be refunded less the original cost of shipping, handling and insurance, the expense of any damages incurred, and a 10% restocking fee (of the original purchase price). All sale items, items altered or resized by the buyer post-purchase, and all storage/ boxes are considered final sale and are ineligible for a return or refund.

Sale Terms: Sale prices are only valid within the prescribed sale window, unless otherwise stated by Revival Fine Jewelry or agreed upon between Revival Fine Jewelry and a designated customer. To maintain business sustainability and general fairness, individual customers are not entitled to exclusive notification of, or owed access to, store sales antecedently. Orders processed prior to a promotion or sale, items placed on layaway prior to a sale, and payments paid through layaway prior to a sale will not be retroactively adjusted to reflect sale pricing or terms.

Specially Negotiated Deals: Items purchased at specially negotiated discounts, deals or prices through any platform between Revival Fine Jewelry and a designated customer are considered final sale, including rates arranged and agreed upon via Facebook, Instagram, email or any other method. Closing deals at special rates reflects a desire by both parties to reach an expeditious and absolute sale. The intention of specially negotiated discounts, deals or sale prices through any platform between Revival Fine Jewelry and a designated customer, is to eliminate extra expenses and/or use of time and resources to formally list or re-list items per their specific and inherent value-determining qualities, as well as avoid unseen overhead business costs, stocking obligations, and all other disclosed or undisclosed monetary and nonmonetary expenditures.

Pricing: Revival Fine Jewelry reserves the right to decrease, increase, alter and modify inventory pricing to meet market rarity, demand or value; to offset platform, transaction or seller's fees; to adapt to economic inflation and fluctuation; and to defray specific business expenses. Pricing is the sole discretion of every small business.

Regarding Brooches & Pins: Often significantly and curiously undervalued jewelry items, brooches, pins and stick pins are treasured pieces of history in this shop. Accordingly, their pricing is calculated analogous to other fine jewelry, including their symbolic meaning, rarity and historical prestige. Such pieces are typically converted to other forms of jewelry, and are therefore becoming increasingly rare in their original states. Aside from being perfectly wearable as sophisticated lapel ornaments, brooches and pins of all kinds are prime candidates for many kinds of fine jewelry conversions, including rings, earrings, pendants, and charms, if so desired by the consumer post-purchase. Revival Fine Jewelry does not perform conversion projects for customers.

Regarding Storage & Boxes: All specifications, including but not limited to the measurements, age, origins, and material compositions are supplied in good faith as professional estimations constructed using professional grade tools, years of learned and honed skills, educational resources and academic scholarship, and refined research methods. Regardless of our confidence in our descriptions and the photographs deemed viable extensions of these descriptions, we cannot guarantee the definitiveness, faultlessness, or exactitude beyond our knowledge and expertise. Kindly keep in mind that this and all items are sold as-is vintage, antique and estate secondhand wares, and consequently bear conditional wear in matter and operation commensurate with age and use.

  • A 30% deposit is due upfront to reserve the item for layaway and pull it from public sale on all of our shopping platforms. Shipping expenses are added to this first payment unless otherwise requested.
  • The remaining 70% balance is divided up into three subsequent monthly payments due on the same day of the following three months. If delinquent, a $20.00 USD late fee is addedย per dayย to an overdue payment until paid.
  • In the event that a layaway installment is left unpaid for seven (7) days and no communication is received from the designated customer, the layaway plan will be presumed abandoned. While the item will be returned to public sale, all payments made hitherto are still considered final.
