Edwardian Box - August Klein Vienna

Edwardian Box - August Klein Vienna

Code: DIG801806


W: 9cm (3.5")D: 5.5cm (2.2")


A rare "presentation" box made by August Klein, Vienna.

August Klein was a very well known and top make who exhibited at The Great Exhibition in London.

The outside of the box is covered in leather with a silhouette on the top with gilt metal decoration around and on the corners of the box.

The decoration on the top is slightly loose but still attached I will leave it to any purchaser to decide if they wish to reattach securely.

The inside of the box is lined in green silk which is in perfect condition.  The lid has a full menu in gold lettering together with the date.

I am guessing that the box originally held a very important present.

Overall the box is in excellent condition commensurate with age, please see pictures.
