Victorian Hexagonal Ottoman Box
A beautifully shaped piece that originally had a rather tired needlepoint embroidered flower cover so typical of the era. That flower motif has been recreated using opulent Spanish velvet, but given a more modern twist with yellow plain velvet on the body and an extravagant silk tassel.
The lid is cushioned and lifts to access a really useful storage space, which is fully lined. Ottomans of this quality are rare indeed due the considerable time and skill required to restore properly. Many hours of hand-stitching were required for this medium sized Ottoman which benefits from scrupulous attention to detail throughout.
