Description


This exceptional antique Victorian sterling silver jewellery box has a plain rectangular subtly domed form.


The surface of this impressive Victorian jewellery box is plain and unembellished.


The subtly domed hallmarked hinged solid silver cover is fitted with an applied moulded border to the rim and retains the original gilded interior.


The body of this fine jewellery box is lined with cedar wood and compartmentalised with a bespoke navy blue velvet fitment with a well incorporating a lift out compartment and bordered by an integrated ring holder to one side.


This antique box has a weighted base and retains the original leatherette lining to the underside.


NOTE: The majority of such boxes have a wood lining to the cover; it is a sign of quality when boxes have an unlined, solid silver cover.


Date: 1894

Condition


This antique Victorian jewellery box is an exceptional gauge of silver for its type, exceptional quality and in excellent presentation condition.

The elevated and exposed portions of the original cedar wood lining shows signs of wear from the overlying cover.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the body have wear in keeping with age and location, but remain legible.

The part hallmarks to the interior of the cover are all very clear.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of antique silverware.
