Description


This fine antique Victorian sterling silver and 9 carat gold jewellery box has a plain rectangular form.


The edges of the sterling silver box are framed with a broad band of 9 carat gold, accented with bracket style corners.


The gold border to this exceptional box has copper overtones, reflecting the colour of rose gold as opposed to the more commonly used yellow gold.


This large jewellery box retains the original hallmarked hinged cover which opens to reveal 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 which provides a central well bordered by integrated ring holders at either side.


This impressive box has a weighted base and retains the original black leatherette to the underside.


The underside bears the retailer’s mark ‘Goldsmiths Company, 112 Regent St W’.


This box is an exceptional, rare and high quality example of its type.


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


Date: 1899

Condition

The box is in exceptional condition considering its type and in keeping with age.
