19th century family Bible box in burr maple with purple velvet lining.

The outside of the box has been restored and polished using shellac. As a result, it now exhibits the wood grain beautifully. The main box is burr maple, the lid has sloping faces topped with a piece of walnut which matches the slope of the lid. The sides are similarly panelled with walnut.

Lifting the lid allows the front to hinge down for easier access to the Bible. The box is lined with it’s original purple velvet, the only repair being the replacement of the hinge cover. The closed lid can be locked, and the box is supplied with it’s key.
